Never DD's fault....
No excuses doesn't apply to him.
(At least on the french RDS)

If Therrien doesn't get DD going....who do you think is next for the blame game?
Already started.....Some start blaming Therrien for not being able to used DD properly
as he was last year.

But there's the thing......

First season: 14 points in 43 games (Without PP)
Second season: 40 points in 82 games (Without PP)
This season: 18 points in 39 games (Without PP)

If you take out the Powerplay out of DD's game....what do you have left?

A 35-40pts player who can't play on any special units, not responsable defensively, bring absolutely no thoughness or grit.

And Therrien will be responsible for not being able to bring the best out of DD as all other coach have done previously.

I understand why Therrien is scared to take him the PP....but i don't agree!
good post

I think this stupid DD signing has Jeff Molson written all over it , political
