Already we saw the media reaction when the mayor tweeted 'ship DD to Hamilton'. The DD situation is a delicate matter for Habs management... a ***** storm waiting to happen.
Well the local boy angle will be heavily downplayed if Brière can come back and find a way to contribute and not to mention that Michael Bournival is quietly having an excellent season so far.
I don't think the DD situation is all that delicate to be honest...GM made an obvious mistake, everyone knows this. All GM's make mistakes, the bigger mistake would be to keep banging your head against the wall and do nothing about it.
IMO, DD's got the rest of this year to try and earn his way back into this lineup...past that and I think he's done with the Habs, embarrasing or not
