In the end, if only the 1st line works, you lose Cole on the first line who'll end up on the Pleks line. So you might have Gallagher on the DD and MaxPac line and Bourque with Pleks and Cole. Or have Bourque with DD and Gallagher with Pleks.

I hope it works well for Galchenyuk. He might surprise. But the guy is clearly a centerman. And what he did in juniors meaning that playing as a centerman while not being the centerman, it won't cut it in the NHL. And Therrien won't accept that. So you'd blow up the magic that makes Galchenyuk look so good. 'Cause even if it's not that big of a deal this year....what happens next year? Is DD and Pleks still here? Will we move Eller?
