The problem with DD is his size, not his skill. He easily gets bumped off the puck when he's up against bigger defensemen. With the quality of our D, we can't give up possession like that. Our D isn't built to win battles back on the counter-attack. We're not Boston. At center, size problems are magnified. So the issue isn't just DD but we can't change six D as easily as we can shift one small top line center.

When we have Subban, Emelin, Tinordi, Beaulieu (all rugged physical defensemen) that's another story. But we're not there yet. We'll suffer until that happens.
