I would disagree, I think a lot of coaches would put the bigger guy at center, especially since he is more defensively competent and DD is better on the wing than Eller is by far. It takes a special person to watch DD get destroyed in the defensive end every night and play Eller on the wing on that same line.
I can understand why Therrien kept trying to get the Cole-DD-Pac line going but it isnt working and DD isnt very useful when he isnt scoring or helping others do so.
