of this team for quite some time....it might be not worth it to keep Eller as the 4th centerman. He could be more serviceable as a return of him than him playing on a 4th that you might want to see tough and in a grinding role. Of course, if a C fails or is injured, you would have prefered to see Eller centering it than everybody else.
not DD, sorry. Plekanec is a lock as a top 6 C, Galchenyuk will be also in a year or two at most, so that leaves one of DD / Eller as 3rd line C.
At that point, unless Habs get a great offer for Eller, might as well keep him instead of the older one who wont be able to produce for long stretches with 3rd and 4th line wingers.
