DD hasn't done anything so far this season, just like Eller, but difference is that DD actually got and still getting every chances to produce.
So why doesn't Pleky start off with scrubs every year? Oh right, because he has done his time in the lower ranks and has produced and earned his way up to the top line. Wait, what about DD then? Oh wait, he started out in the lower ranks too, produced and earned his way up. He didn't 'Just' show up into the NHL as a top line C or given top line wingers.
The difference is Eller, is still stuck in the lower ranks and hasn't produced nor earned his way to the top lines.

Now, in saying that, I don't mind the idea of Eller centering DD and Cole. If that works, absolutely fine by me.
