Just compare DD to guys his size, like Gerbe... not even close.

DD has talent, but he doesn't play bigger than size, which is why he'll never be in the same league as MSL.
Doubt he'll touch MSL's numbers, but the fact remains, DD doesn't top at 40 points...He'll get better over time. I also don't consider him that soft or bad defensively. His FO % is higher than Eller and his +- and production better than gomez. So...I mean, he's no stud defensively, but he's okay. Also, he doesn't quit. We see it often not quitting on a play and getting a scoring chance or keeping puck possesion. That counts IMO.
