Exactly. DD and Gionta are by no means "untouchable", but they are not to be thrown away for table scraps because there are fans who believe size trumps everything else in hockey. Giving away productive players for less than they are worth is a foolish mismanagement of assets and risks alienating the remaining players on the team. Everyone could understand including DD in a package to get someone like Perry at the deadline. Not too many people could get behind sending him to a team for a 2nd round pick because he is "too small" for the Habs' top 6.
