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.
The bolded parts are just insanity. Maybe DD needs to work on his first few steps, because for his size, if he wants to excel, he needs top acceleration.
I don't wanna derail the thread, but you're being ridiculous about AK. He's the most physical and the strongest player on this team. He's the only one that can (and does) outmuscle the players and get them off the puck. And defensively, he's come a long way last year and I think he realized that he has to play within the system (see: Martin's doghouse).

Having said that, that line you mentioned is exactly what I'd like to see this season.
