As for him 'having to do too much'...Lars Eller has taken on alot more defensive responsibility this year, he's shared alot of the tough assignments with Plekanec depending on the matchups of road vs. home.
Cole and Pacioretty have been the top wingers on the team and they have been with Desharnais 90-95% of the time. Cammalleri was playing like crap, that's why he is in Calgary. AK has played mostly with Eller.

"having to do too much" means playing a ton of PK minutes and getting a pile of tough matchups and defensive zone faceoffs.
