DD's save percentage while at ES is .868 this season vs. .919 last season. That is plain fluky.
His defensive coverage is generally decent. I look at all the replays of goals against and he has not been the "at fault" guy all that often.
He and Pacioretty need to be split on the PP.
Pacioretty is an interesting case. He's only got 2 PP goals this year and of his 44 goals over the past 2 seasons, only 8 have come on the PP. As prolific a scorer that he is ES, he's a very mundane PP producer.
Last season, DD's split on points was 40 ES/20 PP. This season it's 15 ES/4 PP. His ES scoring is about the same (.45ppg vs. .49 ppg) but the PP is down sharply (.12ppg vs .25 ppg).
DD's PP production has been as low as it could possibly have been this season. It's an aberration; not a trend. Plus, Subban has had such a great streak on the PP this season that all of the play is (rightfully) geared toward him.
DD-after his slow start-has been ok this year. Cole's performance negatively impacted DD's productivity this season, but DD's ES point production rate will likely be the equivalent of last season's. His PP production will rise sharply in due course.
He'll be a 60 point producer when the next full season comes.
