One player does not make a team. Upgrade on DD? Absolutely. I'd upgrade on Eller, Plekanec and others too.
Why would you upgrade players who at best you could upgrade minimally?

DD is terrible. If he's not setting up goals, he is a negative on the ice. This is not Gionta where I can at least concede he's decent defensively and is the captain plus goes to the front of the net (off and on lately).

DD is atrocious in the face-off circle. He's small and loses his battles. He doesn't do particularly well in traffic. He doesn't go to the front of the net. He's not particularly adept at gaining the zone. He doesn't shoot so he's predictable.
