Looks like the log jam at center is making some movement already. It's getting pretty obvious one of the top 3 centers (Eller, DD and Plek) will be either traded or moved to the wing for Galchenyuk.
Thats the great thing about having excess players in one position. You trade one to make another position stronger.

I don't think they'll trade anyone until they're absolutely sure Gally is ready to step in as centre full-time.
It will probably take time but right now pleks and dehairnais are our best centres. If Eller breaks out we will be in a good position to make a trade and strengthen another position.
