That's completely unfair, and actually stupid.

Plekanec goes down in a game where really, not even a handful of players were performing well. Eller gets to move up and starts playing against Giroux with two linemates he never played with (who are also having bad games btw).
The whole team looked like crap.

Heck, DD didn't even get such tough match ups when he was given a chance at the top 6. Having a shot at the top 6 is one thing (which is what most people were saying for Eller), replacing your best center in the middle of a game versus one of the best ones in the NHL is a whole other story.
