Plekanec used to be a great hybrid playmaker/scoring centre but he has no one to set him up so we are not seeing the other side of his game. You put Eller on his line instead of Darche the line becomes more dangerous. Pleks can be more aggressive on the faceoffs because if he gets booted Eller can step in and all of a sudden you have Eller sending Pleks away on a breakaway or vice versa. Eller is also good in the corners and rushing down the boards.

People seem to have forgotten this aspect of Plekanecs game.
