Anyways, this is about DD. I don't think DD can handle centre higher than the 3rd line. Actually I don't think he can handle centre at all. His game fits so much better on the left wing.
DD is creative and he works hard. I believe he can make plays on the wings or the center. If you don't consider sheer hockeywise talent (passing/shooting), he's pretty much the anti-AK.

AK is big. DD is small.
AK is fast. DD needs to work that.
AK kinda gets lazy sometimes. DD works his ass off.
AK seems reluctant to go physical. DD doesn't hesitate.
AK isn't that bright, playwise. DD knows what to do to hurt the other team.
AK can be a defensive liability. DD always knows what to do best.

AK-Eller-DD is, in my book, a dominant 3rd line. It will be feared this year throughout the Eastern Conference.
