How many think Giroux is too small to be a top line center in this league? For those who want to have fun, go compare DD's season from last year to Giroux's first full season, you might be surprised. DD needs a chance to prove last year was not a fluke, but I am more than willing to give it to him because he earned it last season. If anything, getting a big center into our top 6 will help and support DD and his line by making other teams decide which of our top two lines will get the best defensive assignments to face, rather than allow those teams to only focus on the CDP line.

Seriously, give DD another year and the support of a strong second line and all of you naysayers will become believers.
You do realize Desharnais is older than Giroux, right?
