There's no doubt that you can win in this league with a 60+ points guy anchoring your second line, it's an asset even if you look around the league.
I'm sure Legwand could be adequately replaced by Desharnais. Radulov would have been coming hard every shift...

Hell, Washington might be able to use him. He could give Johansson and Perrault a run for their money.

Pouliot and Darche already happened and he was scoring at half-a-point per game pace with them.

I am afraid that DD's size would be a serious problem as a no1 or 2 spot centerman for any team wishing to go all the way......This is a LONG LONG haul for any big guy!!!

The main problem of the canadien is, that they did'nt have a true first line period!

On a Stanley cup contender, DD would be a 3thd liner with an amazing ease at performing spot duties on the first two lines to boost the offense or the PP...

That being said, DD is a true performer with complete dedication to his team; Unlike too many teammates, he doesn't take time off and he is still a huge asset to his team....

Since its customary to compare to the kings..

Justin Williams - 22g 59pts
Anze Kopitar - 25g 76pts
Dustin Brown - 22g 54 pts

67g

-

Max Pacioretty 33g 65pts
David Desharnais 16g 60pts
Erik Cole 35g 61pts

84g

Seems to me we had a more productive first line than the mighty kings! All that with a goddawful powerplay so that line was beastly 5 on 5. The canadiens problem was complete lack of depth. After Cole you have Plekanec with 52 pts, then no other forward has more than 30 (!). Also our only two forwards with more than 20 goals are Pacioretty and Cole (if they didn't score as many we'd likely be drafting Yakupov, altho that doesn't say much).
