Pleks, O'Rielly, Galchenyuk is a very solid top 3 with better size and skill. DD can either move to the wing, or back to the 4th line. We don't have any quality centres coming up.

I really don't expect it to happen, but ROR is an organizational need.
Avs desperately need defense. Something like Eller and a defender might get it done - but not Weber or Kaberle. I'm not sure it's a good idea to take one step back somewhere else just for ROR. I don't think ROR will be nearly as good as Bergeron, or even Plekanec offensively, but he probably would be more valuable to use than Eller.
