If he can put on another 15lbs of muscle he's going to be a very good one for us. Especially if he can work on his face-off skills and eventually play center for us, would essentially make Plekanec expendable in my opinion or by that time make Plekanec a great 3rd line shutdown option.
Having 3 two-way centers like Plekanec, Eller, Leblanc would be huge. We wouldn't need that one elusive superstar center to compete, kind of like how Boston rolled last season. This of course is dependant on Eller and Leblanc reaching their potential.
