If you can get someone like Niederreiter for Eller, you free up room for Gally and get another power forward winger, something this team is lacking.

If not Eller then it will eventually be Plekanec...but I have seen no inkling that management wants to move him.

One of our centers will be traded, just a matter of when.
They don't have to move anybody. People have to get this thing out of their heads that can't play Gally LW or Eller on the wing. It may be an adjustment short term but only benefits the team long term to have 4 centers on the top 3 lines, even if one is playing wing. Giroux played wing his 1st 2 years and it didn't exactly derail his career. Seguin is doing it now. Zetterberg does both. Carter plays both. Elias can do both. Dubinsky does both. Schenn is currently playing wing in Phi. Malkin does both. Pavelski does both.
