I'd disagree. I think DD's line needs a player that's better defensively and has some size in the D zone. Gionta might be more effective on the 3rd line with Eller.

Ryder - Plekanec - Gallagher
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Bourque
Galchenyuk/Prust - Eller - Gionta
Moen - Halpern - Prust/Galchenyuk

Depending on game situation Galchenyuk and Prust get swapped throughout game. With Halpern looking pretty much as good as he was the last time he was with the team I think this is 4 balanced lines. Plekanec is good enough to cover Ryder/Gallagher's D issues. Bourque improves the Pacioretty/DD duo a little on the D side.
