I just thought Prospal would have the job until he loses it. I definitely understand the idea of just rolling 3 lines regularly, I can easily see Columbus doing this for a while, until they can figure out where all their cards fall: who has chemistry with whom, best fits, etc...
Exactly what I meant. For good or ill Columbus really doesn't know exactly what they have personnel/chemistry wise until the new group gets to play together. With guys like Prospal and Aucoin tutoring the youngsters it will be interesting to see the line combinations.

Not to bring to much realism to this what if post, but a deal around Eller isn't very likely. Eller projects as a #2 center a role that Brassard, Anisimov, and Johansen already are capable of filling. Additionally, depending upon upon the result of the 2013 draft it is likely that Columbus could end up being very deep down the middle (CBJ likely will have at least top 5 pick so say add Monahan too Johansen, and Boone Jenner). Now if Eller could be converted to wing it might be a different story.
