I dunno, just don't see where the doom and gloom is.
Cup winners historically have stronger center duo than Gomez-Plekanec for their 1st and 2nd lines

More specifically, Plek is not the issue - he's more than capable of being a 2nd line center on a contender; however Gomez would be on the 3rd line on a contending team (assuming the 1st line center was a young and CHEAP star that compensated for G's 7.3 cap hit).

Are Eller / DD that star centers? Time will tell... but odds are no.
