The Habs have not had a great scoring center since Beliveau and finding one is the hardest spot to fill in Hockey.

DD has had one full season as a hab and the truth is you would be hard pressed to find us another center who has played for the Canadians in the past 30 years who had a better first full season. DD is not our long term answer or savor at center but this notion that any center we have would have done better with the same players is just BS because if they could have done better they would have because DD was not suppose to be even on our team as he was signed to be a AHL player to be called up on occasion to help with injuries.
A 5.7 UN-drafted player just doesn't leapfrog to the top center spot by luck.
