Opposing D can't focus on one or the other. Swap Bourque in for one of those, and if he goes for a slump as he is wont to do, the D can focus on the other winger, and DD loses a lot of his effectiveness.
I prefer looking at the number of tap ins he offered cole and pac ... and also, the timing and precision of his passes ... the way he carries the puck and uses the space to give the puck to a winger that is at full speed entering the offensive zone. Of course he benefited from a great year for both cole and max , but he made them better as well.
