Ultimately though I think we'd be best off with:

Galchenyuk
Desharnais
Eller

As our 1-2-3 down the middle. Eller is probably the best of the three defensively, and is also the biggest.
Why are we writing off a 23 year old two way player who doubled his points in his two seasons in the NHL despite being horribly mismanaged? Eller might not be more than a 3rd line C but that's basically his floor at this point, and his possession stats are superior to DD's even without consistent help.
