That's a very good point, they might both improve with Subban.
Anyhow I hope this team doesn't choose to keep Desharnais over Eller if it comes down to it. If we go with Galchenyuk-Plekanec as our top-2 centers, then Eller can be a valid 3rd line center, whereas Desharnais cannot be.
The only valid reason to trade Eller instead of Desharnais is if Eller brings in more trade value.
