DD at wing could make sense. Eventually. But I think it's unlikely that Plekanec is still here in three years. And Eller being an able #1 or 2 center isn't a absolute lock either. That being so, it's quite possible that DD ends up playing his whole career at C, and in an Habs uniform to boot.
And if we're actually rebuilding, keeping Plekanec doesn't make much sense. Use him to get a pick, and draft a C/W with it.
The kids need veteran inspiration? I'd rather have Gorges and Cole play that role than Plekanec.
Gorges and Cole aren't centers.
Remember how PK said it's good for him to be able to watch Markov play? Same thing for MaxPac, remember how he said playing along side Cole helps his game?
Maybe you didn't notice, but Eller's game became more and more like Plekanec's (especially defensively) as the season went on.
Plekanec is a good presence for coming centers, and none of the ones we have demonstrated that they can fill in Plekanec's shoes.
