Not gonna happen dude. Talking out of your ass here.

And also unlikely is having Chuckie actually centering a line for now.
One or more of our small forwards are going to have to go sooner or later.
DD is one of the logical choices him being unidimensional but still retaining some trade value.
I'm thinking his being under contract is actually a bonus.
I've always felt it is easier to negotiate a trade with a signed player in today's NHL.
Timing is key as well as what comes back in return.
The Chuckie situation doesn't even enter into the equation. (He is not unidimensional)
He wouldn't be expected to fill a centering roll this year and perhaps not even next.
We do need to get him to top 6 status by 2015.
I wouldn't use the term getting rid of and DD in the same sentence he has value...
But if we could acquire a big strong proven second or even third line center with mentorship
skills on the D side, We should seriously consider it.
This is based on my belief that Pleks needs to stay put and Eller could easily take over DD's ice time.

Who could we possibly get for him?
