D'Agostini serves no purpose whatsoever. None.
To a point I can agree that Dagger is dragging that line down.

But several times Perron made a lazy stick-sweep instead of stepping in to the play like he typically does when he is involved.

I noticed the pressing more when Perron was in the offensive zone (several Blues players have a tendency to stand still in the offensive zone, but Dagger seems to think he is rooted to a single area...damnit gents...MOVE when Frenchie has the puck he usually finds the players that move), but defensively most of the poor performance was on him.
