Trading DD would be a mistake. I see him as part of the answer, not the problem.

It is too bad he isn't faster, but I don't see anything wrong with having a guy like that in the line-up, especially on the PP. Give DD 2 top end wingers, and he will help them more than he would hurt. Defensively, I don't think he's a liability like many of you are suggesting. Most important about DD is that he's an elite play-maker, and I would never give-up someone like that easily.

If there's anyone that looked like they might hold that line based on 1 game, I would say it might be Cole. He looked like he lacked the jump he had last year (grant it, 1st game). If he does show less speed this year I think he'd be better off on the 3rd line as the season progresses to give room for a younger guy to grow his game.
