If Habs are planning to move anyone hopefully DD is at the top of the list. Because maybe his value has gone up. We know that when given the top forwards on his wings and primo minutes he can perform ( sometimes). The problem is that the package would have to include MaxPac who I happen to like. So they would need to get a big talented top six forward in return.

Lots of comments about our D. 57 goals in 27 games. Only the Broons are better ( 55 in 27). Must be doing something right. Goalies aren't too shabby either.

So a power play with less than a minute left in the period and who do we see? DD 439 th in league scoring. 0 PP points . In almost 40 minutes. So let's start the second period the same way. Because he has earned it.

Pleks is a good listener! Every girl in the Bell Centre will be wearing # 14!

DD is once again playing with our two best wingers. He had zero to do with maxpac's two goals , lost his puck battles , and left the ice on the second goal- when CBC points it out it must be bad. Eller getting less ice time again and Prust really not able to convert with two skilled wingers. I hope Bourque will replace Prust on that line and that Briere will replace DD. Of course I realize this is wishful thinking. But I might well say this when things are going well. The team can always improve. And putting Murray in for Franky wouldn't hurt either.

So when Bourque is healthy the obvious lines should be: Pleks-Gionta-Bournival Eller-Chucky-Bourque Briere-MaxPac-Gally Prust-Moen-White I write this knowing that DD has had a couple of decent games. But Briere and Bournival should not be on 4th line. I know MaxPac and DD have a special bond but I wonder if this hurts the team.

I heard he missed the optional skate so maybe he's hurt or sick. If not -MT is an worse than I thought. Bourque still our 4th leading goal scorer and although we all expect more he is still on pace for 20 goals and one of the only players who can score 5 on 5. Maybe he will get a chance in the shoot-out one day - that could secure him more playing time 5 on 5.

Exactly the lines I would use. Briere is an upgrade for DD on third line and White would be better on 4th line.Personally I would put in Murray for Frankie. But MT seems obsessed about keeping DD in the lineup.

So DD is once again centering our two best wingers. All because he had a shoot-out goal? Saturday night he played 18 minutes and no points. Briere created more chances with 4th line duties. And BTW - his face-off % does not include all the times he gets tossed leaving a winger to lose the face-off. Mr. Mayor - stay out of it. MT has to show he's boss now and DD will be getting more first line and PP time.

I don't know how much longer I can take this. DD is useless. Bourque and Pacs got the puck in deep and DD dies nit have the size Iran strength to do anything. He had one season where he got lucky with his line mates and ice time. We were almost last in the entire league. Corey Locke would have done as well . I don't what Pleks,Eller,Bourne,think when they're on the bench and see this crap. I have never in 6 decades found it so hard to be a Habs fan.
