Plekanec mentors Eller and eventually Eller takes over 2C role and Plek plays out the rest of his career here as 3C
Why in the world to people continually insist upon changing the one piece of the center equation which is working the best is beyond perplexing?

Of the Habs current top 3 centers, the only one who might merit strong consideration for the shift to wing would be Eller. He's crummy on face offs and isn't much of a play maker. Shifting him to wing would change his defensive responsibilities-which might be a negative-but on the offensive side of the equation there is little or no downside.
