And this is why I think seeing Galchenyuk on the wing for now is a good thing. Playing more than one position makes you more valuable. Nobody is too good to play on the wing, nor should lines be untouchable. The more flexibility we have the better.

Place DD on the same line with Eller and say, Prust or Bourque, and that's suddenly not a problem. Call whoever center, it really doesn't matter. They are both equals on faceoffs anyway, if anything DD is slightly more consistent but Eller has potential to get better there.
