I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing. If Eller continues to improve, we could possibly have a 20 goal third line centre, who can match up against other teams top lines.
To the people dismissing the QoC stat, like every other stat, it's there to help you draw a complete picture of a player. If you're drawing a conclusion based on one stat line, you're doing it wrong.
I don't think we'll have all four centers here at the same time. Maybe just for one year, to ease Gally in, if need be, but otherwise chances are we'll move at least one.
