He had an opportunity, and really has made the most of it. To the point where now, he's proven to us that he is a real asset.
Again, because we do not have a real #1......Gomez, Eller, PLek and DD are good but none of them are #1 center on a good team......Again, the comparison to Lebeau is good here......Talented, good production but not a #1 Center.....There are so many intangibles you want from your #1 Center and some of those intangibles require size and excellent skating....both attributes that he does not possess....

Dont do DD the injustice of putting on him a label that he cannot carry......admire him for what he is, don't make him what he is not....
