There was a way to avoid this, and it was probably NOT to make this move, considering it had the potential (and rightfully so) to piss-off a player, or have a very lengthy discussion with DD about his new role, so he isn't pissed about it.

At this point, it sounds : hey, you're the only player on this team who gives it all, so we're gonna give you the laziest f***er we have on the lineup at this very point... who also happens to be a small player, not unlike DD.

Actually, it's refreshing to hear a player saying his mind on any topic in this team.

I mean, it's not like the Habs can really afford to suspend him.
