how much more time can you realistically give DD?
If he's not producing, he's completely useless as you cant play him on the 3rd or fourth
Cole might have a bit more leeway as he's a proven vet, but lets be honest, DD doesnt have the same benefit of the doubt
Wow people need to cut the kid a little slack. We are 12 days into the season and he is playing with someone who spent more time looking at salary caps than ice and his other linemate is hurt. Players often have slumps.
How much more time can we give him? I dont know, but i am willing to bet it is more than a week and a half.
Besides, this is a short season. No reason to trade somebody this year. If anything, they should wait in the off season or beginning of next season.
imo Eller doesn't have the jam of a 4th line center. white is perfect. Eller needs to beat out DD for 2nd line minutes - or galchenyuk....3rd line center ideally plays shut down role with some offensive upside
