I can't stand how so many are unable (or unwilling) to actually take context into account when judging players. It's like people just look at stats columns and make up their minds from there

It is extremely frustrating. The fact is that in a hockey game a player can be outscored by another player but still have played a far superior game.

You know what the funny thing is?

Goals and assists are stats themselves :-)

The idea that an assist is worth just as much as a goal, an idea endorsed by 99% of fans, is itself an ad hoc statistic.

Even if Therrien sit him ... what is the problem ?
Some athletes respond well when their coach bench them.

Eller definitely has the potential to become a good player. He is an above average 3rd center with the potential of a 2C (Like some posted, it all depend how he devellops his offensive game).

Eller is overrated ??? Come on. Watch hockey and put thing in perspective.
How was Plekanec after 2 years in the NHL ??
Where was Desharnais 2 years ago ?

The fact is, right now, he is our best 3rd line center option. Still young, still have room to improve.

According to Pierre Lebrun on Twitter, Niederreiter is seeking a trade...

How about Eller + Weber + a draft choice (2nd round?) for him?

I'd probably do this. I like NN. Not sure what happened last year, but the guy has an edge and I like him. I like Eller too... but... I don't think the upside is the same. Could end being a bad deal. But I'd take the chance.

I would trade NN vs Eller + Weber. NN has a bigger upside and he's younger, but his last season doesn't help to increase his value on the market.

...

Irrelevant to Eller, but the problems stems from...

Roman Hamrlik's freaking departure.

:Huh: There was a picture of him this Summer and he got huge but his abs were popping. Hard to believe he got suddenly fat while playing in Europe..

More so when you factor in Eller's work ethic. He's restless.
