He's much better along the boards and using his smarts to integrate himself into the play.
Eller is a natural center and if the team takes him out of there for long term, they are the biggest morons.
I agree that Leblanc is not the greatest playmaker or puckhandler, but I don't think that necessarily precludes him from being an effective center. His skating and defensive smarts are an asset down the middle. I'm thinking of Dominic Moore as a possible comp.
