Sounds like someone doesn't much care for francophones

Do you really discount DD to this level? Or are you just being sarcastic?

The complete discounting of traditional statistical measures-is absurd. DD is the best passer on this squad by a wide margin. He is going to be a leading point producer on the team. He has the best +/- among forwards (and that +/- has been diminished by being on the ice for a few SHG against as well as ENGs against). MP and EC's productivity are not wholly independent of DD. They each say so. Max Pac has been touting DD since the day he was called up. I'll take their words over others.

If the team trades DD for some 2nd round pick, it'll make the Gomez signing look decent. Oops, I forgot. A few on this board still cling to some absurd, esoteric statistical notions of Gomez being a valuable component of this team.
