If I had to chose between the 2, I'd go with Eller, especially if the top 2 spots are taken by Plex and Galchenyuk.
I think at some point Eller and DD would fit well together full time with Eller playing more the defensive zone center role and DD as the offensive playmaker role. Pacioretty would get a bigger role with Galchenyuk perhaps. Maybe add a guy like Kristo or LeBlanc and you have a high end 3rd line. DD getting regular PP time and Eller PK time.
