Why he never get tought start in the D-zone like Eller and Plekanec?

Having said that....let's wait for the end of the season for this.
Right now it's let's go DD and Eller....and the season won't end tomorrow night, so let's be patient
Max Pacioretty gets the most favourable minutes on the team for forwards based on QOC, offensive zone starts, PP time, etc...

DD is just the most often paired center and consequently gets those minutes as well.

Been saying this for a while. You can continue to act surprised if you want though.

That being said, Eller is better suited to handle board battles than DD.

Defensively I trust someone like Eller more in the defensive zone. I trust DD more in the neutral zone. DD gets in the way of pucks pretty well, cuts off passes and has good support in terms of backcheck when other team rushes. Defensively it's his main asset IMO.
