Personally I don't see DD as a 1st line C specially long term. Gally has that spot at least long term. Nor 2nd C which should go to Plek. But for now, I don't mind seeing DD as 1st...that's assuming DD picks it up. If not, no problem, looks like Plek is good to become 1st C again which is comforting. Either player is fine short term.
Eller, well, either we give up the idea of him being an offensive C or he needs to put it all together. Still, he's young so has time but it's not looking too too promising.
Pleks is our #1 right now, and likely for the year.
Gally seems to me he's taking the 2nd line spot little by little. Put Cole with the Gally's
Eller is a good 3rd line C, he should be there for the year, spending time with some aggressive wingers (Prust/Moen) and DD on the wing.
Once Patches comes back, then we'd be looking at more changes, but for the better IMHO.
In the long run, I can see MB making a move in dealing DD somewhere south west where he'll explode a la St-Louis.
