3) Expecting 60 points from DD is a little bit too much but he will get 50+ points seems a better expectation. He should be in top-4 with Pacioretty (most likely first), Plekanec and Galchenyuk. Also he does pretty well in faceoffs.

I do understand many about Eller and Galchenyuk.
But Eller is behind DD on the PP and in offense.
Galchenyuk is another story, he will be the center next year or the following one. Many want to push Eller and Galchenyuk ahead of DD but they are not there yet.
For now, it seems to me that the Habs management are going toward Eller to be the replacement for Plekanec and Galchenyuk to replace Desharnais.

But we are not there yet!
Galchenyuk is outproducing DD despite playing less and barely getting any PP time anymore. Explain to me how he's not ready but DD is?
You don't need to use him as a 1st center. He should be getting DD's spot.
He should be centering a sheltered line.
