The way I see it, more Eller on offense: Good Thing.

Dumont, Plekanec and Gionta can be 3rd line. When Bourque comes back he replaces Dumont to make the same line from the beginning of the year.

In the meat time Ryder, Eller, Galchenyuk can be a strong 2nd line.

The fact that Plekanec can put up 50 points, more like 60+ with good wingers in extremely difficult minutes means there's no reason to not use him in that role. Eller is good defensively and should be given a two way role himself, but the status quo is working decently, if anything needs to be tweaked it's the wingers and power play.
