You crazy kids and your nutty jargon! Back in my day, being a gangsta or a thug was a bad thing, not a good one. Kids these days...

We need some thuggery to stand up to the bruins. Enough of this being man handled by the bruins.

Eller is not a thug/Viking

He is a hockey player.

When Cammy comes back what about:

Cole-Pleks-Cammy
Gomez-Eller-Gio
AK-DD-Maxpac

This way we give Eller two capable wingers to grow and learn from, DD and Patches seem to have a great chemistry between the two of them and having Kostitsyn there sure would only help things.

Moving Gomez to the wing would be the best way to make him completely useless.

Gomez is an elite puck carrier and solid passer with minimal other skills. He basically can only operate effectively as a center.

If you want to do minimal disruption to the current lines and since Eller-Plekanec-Cole seems to be working as the tough minutes two-way line,

Eller-Plekanec-Cole
Cammaleri-Gomez-Gionta
Pacioretty-Desharnais-Kostitsyn

makes more sense giving two offensively potent lines to take the softer minutes.

Or just shifting Eller to center the third line with Desharnais and Kostitsyn on his wings.

Just curious how many wingers in the NHL that put up 6-8x the assists that they do goals. Centers I'm sure there are plenty, but wingers???

if he continues playing as he is... and i think he'll just continue getting better... there is NO WAY JM could justify re-inserting Gomez ahead of him on the depth charts.

He needs a permanent role as a C playing 17-20 min/game, including some power play time.

Eller is doing EXACTLY what Gomez was supposed to do... Make his linemates better...

All of a sudden, Moen/Kost as wingers are looking like legit top-6 players (i mean playing together... Kost has been playing well all year, as has Moen really, but last season all we heard was about how Gomez's problems were b/c he didn't have good enough wingers, but tonight shows the difference that playing with a creative and committed C can do to a line), and that line is more than good enough to be a solid top-6 line.

and the kid is just getting started.

I hope even JM isn't stubborn enough to miss this. Good on Eller for seizing the opportunity.

Insane... but it might work. I wouldn't mind trying this out at all.

i dunno... im not one be negative all the time but regarding eller, i have this nagging feeling like he'll never break out offensively, like a 30-40 point guy max, third liner checking type. all the tools are there and he has great hockey IQ but....

Nice to see him get the fourth most minutes of all forwards in a game that the team gives up 5 goals against and he ends up a +3. This guy has a lot of potential, keep giving him the opportunities.
