His problem is that he's tiny and cannot step up his physical game at all.
It's just depressing to think about him actually - he's not a bad player, he just doesn't fit our needs or wants WHATSOEVER.
Targeting a player who has size and grit and who has some scoring ability, need not be mutually exclusive. The Habs have not been successful at or have not favored these types of players in past drafts, however, it's a lot easier to draft that type of player than to trade for one or add one through free agency.
The regular season has shown that there is enough offense on the team even if DD were replaced by a more physical player.
