Eller is great; it would be optimal to have him on the medium-to-long term instead of Plek or DD, maybe. That doesn't mean we shouldn't take great upside opportunities if they present themselves.
That is a problematic top-3.
DD is only useful in the offensive zone against scrubs. That top-3 takes the best minutes away from the offensive superior plekanec and galchenyuk.
In contrast, Eller can start in the defensive zone against top scorers, which liberate the top-2 to score a lot of goals.
