This 100%. No other line screws up as much defensively as this one (well not including Nokelainen, of course). DD has been at fault for at least 6 goals in the last 3 weeks and when Patches experiences a scoring drought (currently), he disappears from the game completely.
Does their defensive faults deserve to be overshadowed by their offensive input? Yes, I think so. But when people claim that this line "can do it all" or is "great in the defensive zone", I start to question how stupid they really are.
Everyone needs to realize that once we get Gionta back and acquire an actualy top line wingers, Plekanec will go back to first line where he deserves to be (compared to our other centers).
