The habs missed several chances...too many chances, plus two posts.
Not sure this is 100% accurate. He can't handle center duties against other teams number 1 line, no doubt about it, but DD will not get ripped apart like that against other teams 3rd/4th lines. He's more than capable, I agree I prefer him on the wing, but this game alone doesn't suggest DD can't play center on a good team. JM wanted to test him and see if he could roll all 3 lines out at anytime, he can't, and will match up the lines appropriately in real games.
