All this talk about trading Eller...I don't think this plan happens all this year but I personally think the road to being a perennial cup contender includes:

1C: Galchenyuk
2C: Yet to be drafted top centre
3C: Eller/Plekanec

I prefer to keep Eller long term over Plekanec because he is bigger, stronger on the puck and younger which is ideal for a 3rd line centre. Also Plekanec has much higher trade value over the next few years.

Plekanec traded for 1st and a former first round pick. Something like Chicago 1st and Terravainen or similar.
If he isn't traded then he needs to be our 3rd line centre long term. Like it or not Pleks is going to start declining. Time to trade him while he has value or get plans in place for when he is a solid #3 centre.
