DD has adjusted his playstyle and tactics according to his wingers for a year and a half now. He is clearly at his best with players who can create space, and he can make players who can create space at their best as well. Its a 2-way street.

Put Lucic alongside DD, and trust me he'd generate much better stats than when playing with Krejci, even if Krejci is, overall, a better hockey players.
When did you think Pacioretty-Plekanec-Cole happened as a line? The one time they were together for a game was against Vancouver where the ran roughshod over everyone and won the game for the team while the rest of the lineup was getting beat.
