I don't expect him to be on the block for another 'problem' because he isn't one. Many like to suggest it's doom and gloom with DD but it really isn't. It's just Koivu all over again. Gets put into a role that's too high for him and as such people hate him. He never asked for top minutes or whatever, he just slotted into the lineup and surpassed expectations. At end of the day, DD is an asset to me, maybe a stopgap until galchenyuk is ready but it's not to suggest they can't co-exist either.
He's not going to be dealt this season but if Gally can keep up his production, it will come down to Eller, Pleks or DD. DD is the odd man out in this case. When we had Koivu we did not have the depth we have today at center, different situation IMO.
