Atleast Briere's passes lead to something. DD just leads to nothing.
He scored two points. One on a PP in 2OT. That 2OT likely doesn't happen if the Briere turnover earlier in the game, which led to a Boston goal, does not happen.

The other play was off a Mike Weaver shot block, which got to Briere's stick, and then he passed it to Weise. The remainder of his minutes were either forgettable nothings or bad turnovers leading to Bruins scoring chances.

DD cannot face top competition and opposing first lines, but as a bottom line center with two big wingers, he is adequate.
