Common theme of the draft is SIZE down the middle. What is the future of our C's?

And I hope he does. But not because he plays the same role as last year, which unless we hit a home run in free agency, is not a winning formula with the lack of winger depth elsewhere.
All I ask is that this year be a clean slate. And that Eller gets opportunities, in whatever position. Because people complain we lack size, Eller has size, he's also the only player on the team who can deke a goalie, so let's not write him off at 22. I know advance stats aren't everything but the numbers suggest that he has a higher upside than Desharnais and even Plekanec.
Realistically Desharnais could put up less points than last year and I'll be impressed, because he'd be doing it in I hope a more balanced role with potentially lower shooting %s.
