It's difference in offence between Plekanec and Desharnais vs the difference in defence between Plekanec and Eller. Since Eller and possibly even the 4th line (If Parros is not playing) will take the defensive responsibilities.
Personally I don't think Desharnais is all that close to Plekanec in terms of offence. Desharnais seems to be a 50-60pt center when given the biggest offensive role on the team. Plekanec was getting 70pts with that type of role.
