Hard to say. Sekac is faster, bigger and appears to have better hands than DSP, who has also played more NHL games and one would expect should be better acclimated to the league. I think we're seeing all of what DSP has to offer but haven't begun to see what Sekac will do with his tools. It's only 8 games, but does anyone see DSP as a long-term player with the Habs? Or anyone else for that matter. If he has another gear, he could show it anytime now.

Since leaving Mtl Sekac has 3 points in 8 games, hardly breathtaking. Since arriving in Montreal Flynn, Mitchell and DSP have played an aggregate of 17 games and scored a grand total of one point. None of the four players has actually scored a goal. So Sekac has outscored all of them together threefold in half as many games and likely will continue to do so.

Here's a question, if DD played for another team, what Habs player or draft pick would you trade to get him?

No. Another guy that will skate around and produce absolutely nothing. The Habs love guys that give the illusion they may be good but in the end score no points and make no difference. DSP is exactly that guy, which is why the Ducks couldn't wait to dump him. 3 years from now he's trying to find a job in Switzerland.

Horse poopy. That was then and this is now. They can't beat themselves in a scrimmage at the moment.

This team is not as good as its record indicates. It's a great defensive team with 4 decent forwards. The rest are only useful if they play defence only. During the upcoming off-season keep Max Pac, Gally, Gallagher and Plekanek and then who cares about any of the others, they're all replaceable in the right trade. BTW, can we get rid of all the guys that came from losing teams and must still think they're there. Flynn, Mitchell and Pelly-Smith are all a waste of time. They add nothing and unfortunately cost Sekac and a couple of draft picks to get. I would send Mitchell and Flynn to Hamilton now, why build suspense, neither of them is a useful NHL player. I wonder how much we would have to add to get the Ducks to trade back Sekac for Pelly-Smith. You can bet they would want a lot more than Pelly-Smith, which tells you all you need to know about that trade. I think that could be the one that MB spends the rest of his career regretting. I wish I could be more positive, but it is hard to see this team going anywhere in the playoffs. They are fast and good defensively, which is great, but they are a horrible offensive team and aren't really very tough, and more importantly, they have absolutely no killer instinct,. When they have a team on the ropes, they back off and let them back into games. Always. No matter how bad their opposition. Teams like that don't go far in the playoffs. MB still has a lot of work to do.

This team hasn't played a good game in two weeks. That's something to be concerned about. Pray Ottawa doesn't make the playoffs, they would take out the Habs 4 straight and none of them would be pretty.

Just too more guys that buzz around the ice not scoring.The Habs love those guys that look like they might produce but never do.

The reality is beginning to sink in, this team doesn't score enough to be a serious cup contender. Six goals in 5 games?! They have six offensively useless players every night, one real goal scorer and a couple of guys that chip in from time to time but don't come close to striking fear into anyone's heart. They're much closer to a soccer team than the fire wagon brand of hockey. They better hope Carey sets the all time record for consecutive shutout minutes in the playoffs.
