I'd definitely take him over Little right now. Little's good but it looks like he'll just be a consistent 45-50 point player, whereas DD has already shown he can do better than that in his first full year in the NHL.
That's fine, and I wouldn't take DD over Little. Little spent 1 minute more on the PK (Little - 1:30 , DD - :27) and a about 30 seconds less a game on the PP (Little - 2:45 , DD - 3:17) to only get outscored .74 to .62 on a PPG basis. He also has a 31 goal season to his credit.

Regardless, if DD and Little are comparable, it then even highlights the fact that trading Kane for another Little and a prospect makes absolutely no sense, when the Jets have Scheifele and Burmistrov developing as well.
