Look at the Bruins, they have at least 5 regular centers in their top-9. Depth at center is huge. Eller or Galchenyuk will play wing for 3-4 years. Simple as that.
Of course. This was done with Jacques Lemaire in his youth, and can be done again......easily!

Once Galchenyuk is ready to be the #1 centre, Eller can move to #2LW with Plekanec and solidify that two-way line, being better defensively than Bourque

Galchenyuk-Gallagher-Pacioretty
Plekanec-Gionta-Eller
Desharnais-Leblanc/Kristo-Bourque
Prust-Dumont-Moen
Bournival/White

The above assumes we lose the following forwards to Free Agency:
Ryder
Armstrong
Nokelainen

and that we re-sign the captain Gionta for a bit less money
