All I am saying is that Galchenyuk is better with the puck and is more creative right now. So is DD.

Eller is better defensively than either of those two players.

We have to play in the present as well as look to the future. One without the other is Edmonton. And this team needs to score goals.

This year, Pleks, DD, Galchenyuk, Eller, in that order.

If Eller becomes more comfortable with the puck and becomes a better playmaker.......next year.......he can fight for a move up in lines as I see Galchenyuk centering one of our top two lines.

It all rests on Eller's shoulders to make the improvements to take the next step.
