DD is sold as a top six/ top two line center. He is showing to not be able to play consistently in that role AND brings NOTHING ELSE to the team (other than his RDS between period interviews of course). DD's 19 points have been off the back of his teammates Max and Gally, our top two wingers this year and still he sits as the only top forward who is a minus. Stats don't lie.
Are you for real? You were the one to bring up Moen first of all. Second Moen brings nothing else, to use your own terms, than being a forecheking/defensive 3rd/4th line player. Scoring will always be more valuable than defensive play. Its far harder to find a top6 player than a 4th liner, the AHL is filled with guys who wouldn't be much worse than Moen.
I don't even know why this is being argued.
