Yes you are
Plekanec has superior offensive skills, and soon Galchenyuk will be better than both of them.
I agree that size is important, but smaller players can carve out a roster spot if they have other attributes to offer.
No, I'm not comparing DD to Sedin, only saying that they are best offensive centers on their respective teams. Sedin is obviously better than DD, however 62 points is substantial. Worth building around? Probably not. Worth a place on the team? Absolutely.
I would argue that DD is a smoother, better playmaker than Plek. We'll have to wait on Gally, but until he arrives, DD should continue to get prime offensive opportunities.
