I don't agree with Pierre McGuire often, but he made good a point about DD, and how he fits on team perfectly a while ago, and I think Bergevin is doing the same. McGuire called it part of his 7 player profile(method to build a team), he basically said DD would be a 3rd line centre on a scoring line, but would be a pp specialities.

DD cap hit takes up about 5.5% of a 64M cap, that about borderline 2nd line/good 3rd line guy gets.

For me when everything falls into place, we'll like see Gally-DD/Eller down the middle, with the Eller line being the one that plays the tougher matches up.

Sadly this means Plek might be on the way out when Gally is ready to take over Centre, but I think it would be the right move.
