Therrien is just playing him a lot now, either because they are showcasing him or because he's helping him get another contract. But make no mistake, if management had to make this choice tomorrow, DD is gone.
Now I don't want to take anything away from DD. What he's accomplished last year is a big deal. More then anyone of us ever dreamed of. The sad reality though, is there's not much room in the NHL for this kind of player. It sucks, because we all would love to see a hometown boy succeed long term on this team, and unfortunately DD is not that guy. So I hope for his sake, he can get a couple more years on another team and keep his NHL career alive. As for the Habs, it's obvious, he can't replace anyone of the centers and that includes Eller.
Which difficult choice ?
Just move him to the wing. What are they waiting for ?
You give Desharnais AND Eller (and the whole team, actually) a better chance to succeed.
