Obviously not a better one. How many people have played centre in our bottom 6 since Pyatt has joined the team, and how many games has Martin put Pyatt at centre? Exactly. And while I remember the couple of games that gave me hope for DD as well, fact is that he's just not cut out for the centre position in the NHL. He'll do much better on the wing, whether he sticks with the team "long" term or not. If he had more Briere in him, it might be different. But he doesn't, so it isn't.
