I think he really wants to show that he should be getting more offensive minutes, so he tries to do to much. I've also seen him give really easy passes to moen and have them just bounce off his stick, so there's that as well. Andrei last night didn't look very comfortable, IMO, and was having trouble doing much.

I think the PP time Eller is getting will really benefit him. He's the only one on the roster right now besides subban who can skate the puck in and keep it. Once he starts feeling more comfortable, I hope to see him come out of his shell a bit.

he's doing just fine. Why does this poll assume that he's not playing how he should be? When AK was out, it was a bad situation for him. Two of our lines are consistently awesome:
DD-MP-Cole
Eller-Moen-AK

Once Ak gets the feel of the game (not that he was terrible last night), that line will be scoring even more (they did have a goal from the ultimate sniper btw).

Interesting stat, he leads the habs with takeaways. He has a 2-1 takeaway-giveaway ratio which is tops on the team. He also dominated on the faceoff circle last night, going 71% when most of his faceoffs were against crosby and malkin.

Man, he's going to be the best travis moen ever

Isn't it a bit early for this kidn of a thread?

Continue to enjoy watching him develop into a strong 2 way centerman is what I would do.

I believe it was me who compared him to Travis Moen. I might be wrong (It would'nt be the first time) I hope Moen gets 20 goals, heck I hope Eller gets 40, but I don't see Eller in the hopeful way alot of posters do. I think he's a good player that will get 10-15 goals per year and be responsible defensively. If he becomes a star you can gladly use this post in the future and we can all laugh. cheers.

Eller Fined

I didn't know where to post this, but Eller has been fined $2,500 for his hit on Doughty. Seems a little late to be fined doesn't it?

$2,500 for cross-checking a guy that turned his back on Eller, near the boards? Whatever. He should dish out some extra pocket change and send Doughty a few Icy Hot patches while he's at it.

Hopefully Lars remembers this and absolutely destroys Doughty next time we play the Kings to get his monies worth.

So does he now have a 'history' in the eyes of the NHL? Pretty lame if so.

If you're going to fine him for that nothing play, may as well fine him for his little push on Burrows, too.

Maybe they only just realized he plays on the same team as patches

If Eller gets a 2,500$ fine, I wonder why Justin Williams doesn't get one too.

Pretty much the same type of hit

I'd say they aren't picking on us. They're simply playing favorites with other teams. Therefore what Shanny says is technically the truth.

We need to get this guy a polygraph test.

He surely has nothing to hide right?

Guess he had to fine Eller after fining Doughty for a similar play on Oshie a few weeks ago.

Seems reasonable to me, these are dangerous plays if you catch someone off balance.
