But then you might ask....How much Clowe will get if available?
Will Clowe help this line-up more than DD would?
Putting another 3 to 4 millions dollars at the center when you already have Plekanec and Galchenyuk is slowly taking his place is.....bad bussiness.
Especially when their is some weakness on the wings and defense.
That 3-4 millions could help to get a big shutdown-D or a winger with scoring abilities.
I would put that money somewhere else!!
I think at the end of the day it will come down to what we want from our third line.
DD can put up 0.5ppg on the 3rd line with 2nd wave PP time like he did with in his rookie year. There's good value in that. Eller provides size and much better defence but we don't really know yet what his offensive potential is.
I'd still go with Eller, but getting DD on a one year deal for 2-2.5 million is also a decent option.
