I honestly think that a lot of people are biased against DD because of his size (it has been a criticism of the habs for the past 15 years and I think people don't want it to continue).

However all this talk of DD getting more offensive zone starts, easier competition, etc...what do you expect? Every top offensive centre in the league gets put in the best situation to help his team score goals. DD is our best playmaker - he should be getting those chances, what else would you expect? Just watch Vancouver. The Sedin's start in the offensive zone all the time - it's because that gives them the best chance to score goals, which is what they do best. I'm not comparing DD to Sedin, but he is our best offensive centre and is deserving of being put in those situations.

DD could very well go on to lead our team in scoring for the next 5 years - I wouldn't bet on it, but it wouldn't surprise me either.
