DD cannot match up versus the opposition's top lines, his line just won't do as good as Plekanec's would, or even Eller. So that leaves DD in a more offensive role. But that doesn't mean things can't change, and I expect them to. Eller is being wasted as a third line center with scrapers, and it would be completely unfair not to give him a chance in a more offensive.
We should consider moving DD to the wing, and letting Eller blossom in a more offensive role.

Forget DD on the wing! If he cannot play at center he is useless. Wingers need to be either very speedy or able to win battles along the boards.. DD is not that! He can not even play wing on the power play effectively, much less five on five.
