At the end of the day, it comes down to who you think can do more with easier matchups and easier minutes.

If you decide to keep DD, you are essentially forced to give him the easy minutes and must give the tougher matchups to Pleks/Galchenyuk. As a result, he will put up pretty decent numbers (60ish pts last year, perhaps more if he gets better).

If you decide to keep Eller, he is capable of taking some of the tougher minutes due to his size and skillset. Thus, easier matchups go to Pleks/Galchenyuk.

In the end, who do you feel will be better with easier minutes? Plekanec/Galchenyuk, or Desharnais? Who will put up better numbers?

The perverts will call me a hater perhaps, but I think Pleks or Galchenyuk have more offensive talent than DD.

Yours in Christ,
