Dion's obviously a different level of player, like many tiers different, but he's not the kind of guy I want next to EJ for the same reasons I celebrated so hard when we moved Quincey for Downie.
Dion really isnt that player much anymore. For the past 2 years he has been used in a shutdown roll and excelled.
Hence him facing the highest quality of competition in the league last season.
