Against TB on the road, when you face Stamkos and Lecavalier at center for essentially 2/3s of the game, I feel having another line aside from the Plekanec that can play some hard minutes (Moen-Eller-Armstrong) is necessary.
No way you can trust Galchenyuk or Desharnais or Prust at C to play those hard minutes against C's of that quality at this stage.
True that, Eller and DD can switch position as need be, just keep the 3rd an offensive line with Eller, DD and Cole in whatever position you need. This line as also the advantage of having a second center when DD gets kicked off the faceoff in the defensive zone.
