DD can't do anything to create space for himself or others, that's why he gets killed in tough matchups. Been obvious from day 1. Can't believe people tried all year to refute this.
He's not close to a #1 C. He's a pure skill player that absolutely needs time and space to succeed. With time and space he will put up more points than someone like Eller because he has superior skill but without time and space you have to take Eller because he can push back and at least produce something, anything. Just using a bigger C like Eller as an example.
These are just the circumstances of the NHL. This is why small players don't get many chances because they can get knocked back from great players to absolutely invisible.
