The Habs are set up to have 4 functional lines, they'll be able to use their top 6 in offensive situations and have their bottom 6 lines for defensive/energy situations.

As for Armstrong...I'm not entirely convinced he's got much left in the tank, but in worst case scenario, they can slide White to RW and bring up Dumont to center the 4th line.
It should help Eller a lot that he is cemented at center where he is visibly more comfortable.

Agreed about Armstrong, but it sure would be nice if he could regain his Pittsburgh form.
