Woah, Friedman just said on TV that once Bergevin took over last summer, Bergevin told him that Eller was the guy he got the most calls on from other teams as they wondered where he would fit, which further intrigued Bergevin about Eller.

Eller has a lot of potential. I get mad when fans write him off and want to ship him off. Whether he reaches that potential is a different story, but it's there. The team has to provide him with opportunities to show is talent.

Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Armstrong
Prust - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Moen - Eller - Cole

4 lines that can score

yah heard that too....came here to post it but got sidetracked with the **** in my pants pic lol.

he can handle the puck well....Obviously galchnyuk is slated to beome our number one..i mean..my lord the boy is a point away from being our leading scorer and he;s 18 years old, having missed a year of junior....pretty impressive ****....i can;t see plekanec going anywhere he;s to well 2-way and he's still got alot of good year in him yet. i think desharnais and eller are gonna have to duke it out.

Thing is if we agree that Eller has only a place at the center position. And if we also agree that Pleks, DD and Galchy are the next centermen of this team for quite some time....it might be not worth it to keep Eller as the 4th centerman. He could be more serviceable as a return of him than him playing on a 4th that you might want to see tough and in a grinding role. Of course, if a C fails or is injured, you would have prefered to see Eller centering it than everybody else.

Keeping Eller as luxury insurance will only hurt his value. We are better off trading him.

When we traded Halak for Eller nobody knew Desharnais would be as good as he is.

I'm not sold on DD's long term future on this team so Eller as a 2-way 3rd line center is where I see him

Or that we would draft a franchise center 2 years later.

not DD, sorry. Plekanec is a lock as a top 6 C, Galchenyuk will be also in a year or two at most, so that leaves one of DD / Eller as 3rd line C.

At that point, unless Habs get a great offer for Eller, might as well keep him instead of the older one who wont be able to produce for long stretches with 3rd and 4th line wingers.

Is there any chance that maybe they are 'purposely' holding him back? If they put him with offensive guys and he lights up a 30-goal season, there's another 6 year/$30 million deal they have to deal with. Sign him at a bargain rate, then once the gionta's and cole's of the world's deals are up, you put him in the top 2. You have an offensive player for half the price.

Does that make sense?

Eller with less than 6 minutes so far..the least on the team.

And people claim we are making excuses that he's unable to break out.

Yes. Having a 23 y/o 30 goal scorer is every team's worst nightmare.

We'd have to roll Laviolette style but Therrien likes to play matchup. And likes to shelter the rookies which I advocate for now.

Ellers best play is on the wing.

I love it when people write him off at a 3rd liner at best, when he's actually a really good third liner. And this is without any developpement.



I'd say DD becomes redundant on C, Chuck is some kind of offensive freak, wich means we don't have anytime for him soon on the PP... Either we move him to the wing or trade him.

Yup, whenever he looks good it is driving to the net from the boards after DD has dished to him. His worst is when he has to make a pass, the guy can't dish or make his wingers better.

Plekanec couldn't dish or make his wingers better either when his wingers were White and Moen. Maybe Plekanec should play on the wing?

I liked his play on the one powerplay he was on with Galchenyuk and Gallagher at the beginning of the 3rd.

Wrong again. He looks good when he's in the middle and shutting down the other team's offensive lines. You can count the amount of time's he's actually played with good wingers on one hand. Funny how he could rack up assists everywhere but Montreal.

Hmm..

The gap of skill between Prust and the Gally's really showed today. I think it's time to give Eller that spot and have a nice energy 4th line.

That would be true if Plekanec couldn't get his passes through. Ellers passing is not good enough for the NHL game, he should be on the wing before Desharnais.
