Eller's shoulder is okay already. He's already been cleared for contact. He's a very talented offensive player, who also plays good defence and plays physically, too. The normal knock on flashy young forwards is that they are liabilities on defence. With that not a factor, I think Eller's offensive capability will be so desired by Blues' management (he'll blow them away in camp and exhibition season, that they'll have to make room for him on the roster. Usually, there is one forward hurt at almost any given time. That's all it would take for Eller to stick with The Blues from the start. The roster will be expanded in the first 2 games in Sweden, anyway (Junland and Eller will be on the team. When they return, I expect Eller to be staying with the team. I expect that they'll keep Winchester up, but will waive Stastny and Janssen (I think King beats him out), and no team picks up either.
I expect Palushaj and Sonne to start in Peoria, and, maybe Palushaj gets a trial later in the season. I expect that both of them will make The Blues' roster in 2010-11.
