I'm a huge DD fan, but this is definitely true. Plekanec (or Gorges - I'm torn) is my favourite player on the team. I hate when people say DD is a product of his linemates because he's not. But he definitely had way better linemates so it was easier to produce than Plekanec.

I would have no problem putting Patches on the wing with Pleks and Bourque up with DD, if needed. Plus, I'd love to see what people say when Bourque scores a career high in goals on DD's wing ("Well of course DD had a good season, he had our two best wingers again!" ).

And I'd also like for people to stop complaining about Pleks production since he'd have two good wingers.
