Also I don't think DD is a headcase in regards to finding players to play with him, he did well in his 1st year, had like 22 points in 40 games playing on a 4th line with a mix of Darche, Pouliot and White.

IMO the Habs are going to keep him, Eller and Plek until they feel that Galchenyuk is ready to be a top 2 centre. And many thought that it would be DD that would be gone when Gally would be ready, but signed him to a long term contact, it might not be the case.
yea you're right about Gionta. I would agree that they won't renew his contract
in 2 years if he's not getting traded this summer. Gally will take his place.
i just still think that Chucky will be ready a lot faster then we think and DD is gonna
be in the way. especially with Eller pushing and with Peky still in the lineup..
anyways i just feel that one of them will be stuck on the 3rd line rotting because
of the overload on center position and because of a short 26 yr old that has
good playmaking abilities.. I don't see Eller, Chucky or Pleky playing on the 3rd
next year.. That would just make me sad..
