Nothing would change in terms of match ups, only ice time will go up for Eller, and lower for DD.
I agree kriss, I've been saying this forever. DD can exploit 3rd line competition, vs other teams top 2 lines he is over-matched. The 3rd line shutdown role isn't what it use to be. Most teams play strength vs strength, the 3rd line shut down role is a fairy-tale for those stuck in the 80-90's.
