DD didn't survive ONE full game at LW and people decided he is good there?

Marty St. Louis is an exception. Almost all super-small players are centres. Furthermore, Desharnais IS a centre, I'm not just spouting theory!

Now, Eller is more likely to make a good winger than Desharnais. So, even though I like Lars' puck-carrying, if the two absolutely had to play together, I would reluctantly move Eller to the wing.

My preference:

Gomez-Gionta-Pacioretty
Plekanec-Jagr/UFA/eventually Leblanc-Cammalleri
Eller-Moen-Kostitsyn
Desharnais-White-Pyatt
Pouliot (if signed)
