The wingers are the ones first in on the fore-check, and while DD is good along the boards when he has the puck, usually using his powerful legs to protect the puck, he would be useless on the fore-check, most small wingers like Gionta who have success, have very strong upper body strength, which DD doesn't have.
DD played on Gomez's wing against Boston in that 7th game, and was the best player on the ice before getting injured...
