Awesome vidéo! Great hand, he's willing to go to the net! Great package.
Eller is described as a playmaking centre, too.

Pouliot goes to the net, just being on the 3rd line, there's not much skilled play going on the boards for it to warrant use. He also didn,t get much pp time near the end of the season/playoffs to actually go and stand there.

That's assuming we don't re-sign Pleks or an other FA. I didnt count the cap hit or the avg age but this is probably one of the youngest O corps in the NHL and Gomez's contract prevents me from saying one of the cheapest.

I suppose.. how often have they been together last season? Not much...

And Pouliot was broken in the latter half. He re-injured the same wrist that he was healing when we got him amongst other things in the latter half of the season.. but at one point he was as dominant as Andrei was in his 20 game phase, hitting everything and scoring tons, being the missing piece on Gomez and Gio's line, until Redden's face broke his wrist. And that was the last game he was dominant in.

I cant believe we are so down on him.

Not Koivu, you're thinking Andrei Kostitsyn who played the point temporarily last season.

Not last season, i don't think. He did it for one or two games under carbo and was never tried again.

Carbo tried Sk74 at the point, not sure about Akost.

As for Eller, I'm really happy to have him on the team. I like how PG builds around speed.

He was tried on point a couple of times in the same season we finished 1st(3rd NHL), with Andire scoring 26 goals. I think sure Kovalev was too.

Oh yeah, I remember he was removed because his slap shot was always wide and he coudln't one-time properly. As for Sergei, he used to play at the point with the London Knights so that's why Carbo tried him there.

Hmm... just thinking but would really love to see Eller on the third with at least one other offensive player. I think an ideal might be sticking him with Pouliot on the third. They could mature together and form quite the pair if they both play up to potential. That would require bringing in another top 6 forward though, a la Frolov, in addition to Pleks or another center (Lombardi / Jokinen / whoever). Would be a tough fit under the cap... almost certainly meaning a requirement of someone taking Hamrlik from us. But this line-up for forwards would be quite good:

Frolov - Gomez - Gionta
Cammalleri - Plekanec - A. Kostitsyn
Pouliot - Eller - Lapierre
Pyatt - White - Moen

Some people are saying his play should work on an NHL level, but it seemed to me like most of his goals were because of poor defensive overage and general laggyness. He was open a lot in front of the net, there was a goal or two where he made the room and scored, but most of the time he was in the right place at the right time and I don't see the same opportunities in the NHL. Hopefully I'm wrong, but it's worry. I will say though, that he was always in front of the net which is a great sign, play this guy with Gomez and Gionta and they can bring it in and control the puck well around the net while having a guy riding the goalie's ass.

for me its more like :

Eller - Marleau - Cammalleri (swap lw-c if you want)
Kostitsyn - Gomez - Gionta
Pouliot - Moore - Moen
pyatt - lapierre - white

markov - subban
spacek - Jorges
Gill - obyrne/carle/weber

His two goals in the NHL were from him going to the net.

First of all, most of his goals were because he went to the net. In any level that will get you goals regardless of how and why it happened. In the SEL highlights we can see that the guy has very good hands and can create plays for himself. That shows he can pretty much play any kind of game you want. I remember hearing a lot of good things about him when he got drafted and must say that im more than impressed.

Do you have a source/link for this or it's pure speculation? Because it'd explain a lot of things about Pouliot's play during the playoffs.

Yeah I do, there was a thread not too long ago with a detailed list of all the injuries. The guy was an insider looking to get validated by mods, dunno what happened to him or that thread. Search for posts by a user named go_habs_go I think.

edit: actually, here... scroll down a bit.

oh I agree for Plek to go to the board, but the crease, meh, I'd prefer him to find the open man ala Akost when the latter is awake.

I didn't know Eller was a playmaker, thanks for the info guys!
