Something I haven't seen anyone propose is slotting Eller on the LW with either Leblanc or Galchenyuk playing at the 3rd line spot.

Leblanc more likely than Galchenyuk. Leblanc is a hard worker and I believe a natural center. He could conceivably center a 2rd line of Moen, himself and Palushaj/Armstrong/Gallagher (as a long shot.)

Eller also played wing at the WC's, so he has some familiarity at that position. He has high-end skill and made better use of his big frame as the season went on. Also has a decent shot. A line with Plekanec and Gionta sounds great.

Hell if MAB doesn't like AK and is looking for options, Dominic Moore is still out there. Can play 3rd line center role with ease. Let the top 6 wingers rotate and figure out who works and he can flank the bottom lines. If that doesn't work out we can nab a 2nd at the deadline.
