OH and this year, with prust/armstrong/moen, Plekanec should hopefully get less TOI and better minutes (probably won't play the PK as much) and his production IMO will show it.
I'd try Patches - DD - Bourque. Bourque deserves another chance and he's a big guy, therefore it would make up for the loss of Cole on that line. I'd give Cole to Pleks, and maybe Gio with those two? However, we definitely need another top-6 guy. It's a definite need, 'cause we can't give Eller shi* for another season. He needs good guys beside him to develop properly, and we don't have a lot to offer to him right now if we settle the two top lines like I set them.
