I see Dd as a big piece of the habs not just a 5'7 guy that we could trade for a second or a ufa.
I'm not saying get rid of him. I'm saying he's given unequivocal support because he's French. Unfortunately, that's the truth. Any French player in Montreal is, you know that.

Anyways, he has amazing skill, but I think he's better suited to the wing. He won't beat any top center in this league because of his size. Your #1 line has to be out there most often. If you can't win battles in front of your own net and play strong defensively against the other team's best players, you should either be on another line or play wing where you don't have to be as defensive. He can be a lot like Peverley that way. He's an amazing player. You can't have enough centers who shift to wing. He can be a huge asset for us. But because of who he is, he's not given a blank check to play the center ice position. Why can't we shift him around? Why can White, Gally and Eller be moved around but he can't even be discussed on the wing? Why is Eller benched so quickly, yet he's given so much rope? It's silly that he's given preferential treatment.
