Why not give Eller a chance on the PP as a center?
Why not give Eller some offensive wingers?
I would've demoted Gomez and tried to see what Eller could do with some offensive wingers.
I would've realized my PP sucks ass and put my best center back down on the half-boards. I might try that offensive D from the KHL to run the PP and see what he brings to it.
Its only the 3rd game of the season... the lines havent even had a chance to click with eachother and create real chemistry so switching the lines and shuffling players will only cause confusion and be worst. Give them a chance and remember that the ultimate goal is to get in and compete in the playoffs (not to be the next Sharks or Capitals) and team chemistry has alot to do with that. Also there are alot of teams that don't do too well at the begining of the season but start picking it up around the 10 game mark so we should have a better view then of how this team will really look like this season.
