While I do feel that DD is slightly overrated as of late, I still take him and his salary 100 times out of 100 compared to Gomez and what Gomez brings. It isn't even close.

But that being said, no DD is not a full time top 6 NHL centerman. He's too small, he can't skate very well, can't win faceoffs, and he gets manhandled consistently. He has his strengths (mostly hard work, drive, and decent hockey IQ) but aside from being a PP specialist I don't think he has much else he can bring to the table (barring some big improvements to his game, which could happen).

As it is they have the 2 biggest and most physical wingers playing with him, which kinda sucks because it's not like Montreal is over flowing with big physical wingers...Would be nice to spread the 2 we have around instead of having both play on the same line to make up for a lack of physicality at C.
