For some Reason JYP's homepage has him listed at 90Kg's (198pounds)

http://www.jypliiga.fi/joukkue/hyokkaajat/81-lars-eller

You'd assume they would have weighed him in? 90kg can't be true. Im pretty well built.
But no way im bigger than Eller, and im 95kg and my bodyfat % is low..

They must have broken scales!

They just took his weight from an old website probably. He said in an interview in the summer he was over 210. I can't remember the exact weight.

Has to be what happened.

Nothing else makes sense

I haven't been doing too bad coping with the lockout but what I'm missing most is seeing Lars Eller.

It's hard to gauge his ceiling but I think he's going to turn into a helluva player and whenever the NHL resumes we'll get a more accurate picture of what he can be.

Never liked the 'good at everything but great at nothing' tag on him. He might not exactly be world class in any one thing but he's damn close in quite a few things IMO.

Lot of Blues fans contended that Eller would be better all around than Perron in the long term when that trade was made. Who knows if that will end up being true but I do know that I'm happy we have him.

I'm with you in not being totally sure how high his ceiling is. Given how he's been used up til now, anyone would be hard pressed to give an accurate read on what he's capable of long-term.

I will say this, however: given his skill-set, size and work ethic on a team that is still kind of small at center, he will get ample opportunity to prove his mettle. I for one think he will end up being 2nd line C behind Gally one day. Hell, even if he ends up an elite 3rd line C, it will mean the team is that strong... and that's never a bad thing.

He seems all buisness, and wow at those tree trunks at 11:20 when the camera zooms out.

Lars is really racking it up! Unfortunately have not been able to see any games from him so far, but for comparison with a couple of other NHL centers in SM-league:

Eller: 4. 4+2=6
Max Talbot: 4. 2+2=4
Valtteri Filppula: 16: 6+9=15
Mikko Koivu: 10. 5+5=10

Not too shabby. It's a different league and a different rink, but anyhow, hard to find anything to mumble about there...

How good is the team he is on? Would you say he is the driving force or someone else?

One of the top teams in the leagues without a question. Champions of the previous season and would be really surprised not to see them in the top-4 this season.

Apparently played today in the first line with top notch guys: http://www.sm-liiga.fi/ottelut/kokoonpano/37692.html, but without seeing a game, hard to say if he's the driving force or just tipping the shots in from perfect feeds. Averaged ~20 minutes in each four games played anyways.

Interestingly, Lars is playing as a center and I recall he mentioned to be enjoying that position. If I've got it right, linemates he's playing with, have also established as centers in the past.

I feel like Eller, Plekanec, Desharnais will force one of them out next season, and that it will be plekanec as he probably has more value
