This team will not succeed as long as David Desharnais is a top 6 center.

Until we actually put the odds on Eller's side, that likely won't change. It's like when we put Latendresse on the bottom lines and then wondered why he didn't produce much.
Just take Plekenac as an example. Last year, we put Darche and Bourque on his wings. Not surprisingly, that line looked like a 3rd line, production for Plek lowered. So, should we be surprised that Eller only looks like a 3rd line when he's only been used as one??
As for Eller just being a player good at everything, the same can be said about Plekanec. Doesn't mean you can't be a top 6 player.
He needs to more offensive duties before being labeled as a 3rd liner.
I have no issue making lines with Bourque on DD's wing with one of Cole/Max and the other of Cole/Mas on Eller's wing.
