nice for the regular season , but not to go to war with in the playoffs

no team you just mentioned would even touch DD on thier top 6 , and frankly he wouldnt even be on their rosters , cause he plays no role on the bottom 6

its those Peverly , Stoll, Draper types who play third line and help you win

the other point is this ...there was no need to sign him now

ride out the season , and see what goes in the playoffs

I think he was an RFA , plus AG is ready to take over next season after breaking him in this year slowly . AG will be bigger , stronger , knee fully healed ,and with #1 minutes and pp time , how worse can he be than DD , with his skill set
and the #3 pick in the draft and the best center prospect we had in 20 years

if this was years ago when we had very little past Pleks then you can justify signing him right away

Pleks is the perfect 2 and Eller rounds out the third line and can fill in top 6 when need be .

if some stupid team wants to throw stupid money at him , take the draft picks and move on
DD is not ''the problem''.

It's Gionta, Gallagher, Bouillon, Dumont and DD.

We can't have all this in our line up...
