Finally a reporter than noticed Eller's performance. By the way the TSN commentator was raving about him I thought I was watching a different game. The guy was a -4 on the night. Simmons caught a break for his goal because Eller missed his assignment, 1 of many he missed on the night including on the Couturier goal. Also he is now up there with snipers like Patrick Kane, Semin and Nik Backstrom on turnovers. He ranks 278th on +/_ on turnovers. I find it hard to believe that this isn't noticed by Therrein and Bergevin. Yes, I'm not an Eller lover. Hard to like a guy that is soft, not much of a shot or eye for the net, little grit or heart. I think it's his good looks that get all his support.

WHile Eller has played better since his benching, he's still not a top 6 forward. He's turning the puck over less lately but he's no scorer or setup man. And has to be one of the softest players that's easily knocked off his skates. Into 3 seasons no coach has yet to find linemates that he clicks with (mainly because hehas little peripheral vision). I think he'll be traded before the end of season.

This was a scarey win. What I've noticed in the 3rd period is what I saw alot of last season. 3 forwards come out of their end with the puck...as the puck carrier crosses the red line his teammates go off for a change and he is left dumping the puck into their end and basically turning over the puck. SImilar to their loss to the Sabres. If Therrein doesn't see this and fix it we're in trouble. They didn't play this way the first 8-9 games. What is going on with Pac. He looks lathargic, little energy...something's going on with him. And winning faceoffs has been pathetic this year. Comon boys, don't fall back into last seasons play

don't feel bad for weither of them. RC has shown that is a player misses assignments and plays poorly, he's not willing to give them icetime. I like that lesson.

While a record stands forever, I think one has to see that Kaberle's last s/o attempt was over 2 yrs ago and his last s/o goal was in Oct. 2008. That's a lifetime ago in pro sports.
