Dea scored 8 goals in 8 games with Andrighetto out in December/early Jan.
I agree; Dea is not a soft player. The guy is not afraid of the heavy circulation but he does not have the frame to cope with it. Not yet. Once this guy fills up, watch out!

Side note... If I remember correctly, this is Andrighetto last season in the Q: he will play pro for a team back home (Swiss) after this season. Based on the little I saw of him and, more importantly, according to a hockey freak friend of mine who lives in Rouyn, this guy was a no brainer for the 2012 draft. I guess Habs scouts think of Rouyn as another planet!
