I wonder if Eller's regression has a lot to do with the Habs playing dump and chase garbage.
His biggest strength is his puck possession skills, too bad that's not necessary in this new, garbage system.
The problem is they can't launch the offense from deep within their zone fast enough (nobody could with a crap system like that). That's why they have to play dump & chase. The opposition is already all grouped up at their blue line once they make it there.
