Well, with Eller on the 4th, the 4th gets much more minutes than they usually would. Which helps Therrien better manage his bench.

And I didn't make the argument that Eller should play long term on the 4th. He should be sent there on occasions; especially for games we need to manage our energy carefully and roll 4 lines regularly. You then put Galchenyuk as Centre 3rd, give him reliable wingers.

The point is to keep our depth alive and active. Which means occasionally appointing Galchy centre instead of Eller, and using Eller as superdepth. Trust me, when the injury bug will be biting our Centres, we'll be happy to have that depth.
