It says in the article he's put on weight. What's the latest news on his weight? IMO that's an important part of how he'll develop...

Ideally he develops his physical strength like Pacioretty, who took a while to build it up but ended up reaching 210+ on a similar frame to Eller's without sacrificing any speed to get it. Eller is already pretty good in physical battles along the boards and around the net as a beanpole, he could be really good at it if he fills out well.

Eller mentions that he struggles to maintain the weight during the season...so he may start the season around 205lbs, but drop as low as 195 during the course of the year.

I hope he plays with Kostitsyn and Desharnais on the third line (put the best face-off winner at center). That would keep both Eller and Desharnais from being on a line with no offense and get us a real fourth line with White that could play center.

I think he needs to be careful to not gain too much in one year. If he can add 10-15 pounds this year, then add another 10 next year, it might not impact his speed & agility.

IMO, 15 pounds is way too much in one year. I'd say ten is alright. Montreal is a speed first team so he'll need to keep his mobility if he wants to make it here in Montreal.
