The intention here is to allow Eller to slot into the position he was meant to play. He is not a dynamic goal scorer and the likelihood of him developing into one is minimal. The aforementioned lines would provide him an opportunity to play on the top six and in addition fit arguably our most impact driven goal scorer (Cammalleri) with the struggling G-Unit in hopes of awaking the beast so to speak. If their lackluster offense maintains, we could potentially swap Plekanec/Kostitsyn for Cammalleri on that line.

Suffice it to say, I would fancy Plek to covert to a winger and a powerplay point guard, especially the latter. Other teams have utilizes this style of play and witnessed abundance of success. It never hurts us any to attempt to throw the same dice.
