Dion takes a lot of crap from haters on this board. When he is minus in a game they all come here and **** on him. Look at last game 25 mnutes a night, shut dowm tavares and his line., was a plus 2 and scored the game winning goal, yet where were the haters then.

Lets look at DP this year

logging over 25 minutes a night
plays against the other teams top line
getting points when needed
playing all year with 2 NHL dmen who are not ready yet for
the amount of minutes they have to play
He has 4 goals and 6 assists for 10 points and is -7
all with partners not ready for 25 minutes a night

Lets take a look at a comparsion dman who all the DP haters
would love to have on our team.

Drew Doughty
he played last year with willie Mitchell and was an all star
this year with WM out lets look at DD stats.
has no goals 8 assists and is a -6. See what having a #2 NHL
calibre stay at home dman brings to you(WM). It lets DD plays his game

Using the same logic as DP haters then DD certainly is not a
#1 dman becasue his plus minus is awful, he has no points for what he is paid,
and he is not a good leader because he doesnt fight
