The Habs should get back to their 'No Excuses' mantra.

Unfortunately, these days it seems that it's mostly Eller-Gallagher-Galchenyuk that are properly playing (and Prust) while the rest seem to be bumbling around waiting for someone else to step up.

While most of the team has been terrible, I just can't seem to shake the idea that DD is the one player in the entire team that really doesn't fit under the 'meritocracy'/accountability structure. He's rarely benched (and by rarely, I think it's actually 'never'), rarely demoted, always in his sweet spot on the team as the sheltered offensive center who isn't expected to play defense/win faceoffs/skate well/do anything other than pass the puck, etc. And he hasn't produced nearly well enough to justify his minutes on the PP. His unbreakable shield? He's a hard worker.
