Honestly, i don't buy that DD is on the team dye to being Francophone.

There are tons of passable French players around the NHL the has could acquire. You don't give a four year contract to an affirmative action hire for the all important first line center position.

Patricce bergeron and Vincent lecavalier are not available. Bordeleau, lapierre, latendresse ate examples of effective, available francophone players.

I will also point out that the bergevin administration is not giving any favoured treatment to Louis Leblanc.

Dd was kept long term because management bought into the hype that he has elite vision, not because if his blood.
