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

Eller compete against top-6 lines cause he's a great defensive centre.
The 3rd line was typically the number 1 defensive line in the 90's and early 2000's, not so much anymore. Most teams goes power on power. DD lining up against other teams number one or number 2 line is not something we want.
