    Here's hoping the post-pressbox-purgatory results in a DD thread that is not exclusively a bash-fest on the poor little guy...

    Because he doesn't fit. And he's on pace for 5 points on the season.

    This board has been harsh on DD. Now that MaxPac has shaken off the rust, I hope Therrien gives him another opportunity to find that chemistry.

    I find DD effective when confident and playing with two big wingers. He played often with Briere, and it was clear to everyone they needed to be separated. I like Bournival on Pleky's left, so I hope Therrien starts MaxPac-DD-Bork.

    They'll have to look a really long time cause Erik Cole was that chemistry.

    He's a playmaker who has not made a good pass all year. As long as he loses every one on one battle in the corners, we waste icetime on a negative-sum player. Have him sit in the pressbox for a couple weeks and tell him to work on his balance, so he can maybe get back to being a contributor. Until then good luck to Bourque and Bournival.

    Good thing. We need to keep the masses amused in case another player starts to suck more.

    it's hard to imagine anyone sucking more . . . I mean a center playing 15 mpg with 1 point in 15 games, although it was a primary assist!

    He's given Desharnais enough chances to get going.

    I was hoping he would stay in the press box longer, much longer.

    Even though he's clearly not performing up to his cap numbers, I'll still take a Desharnais-Brière and who have you line in place of the White-Parros line that actually costs the Canadiens a heck of a lot more defensively and won't give you anymore offensively.

    DD should work on his shot. If he could snipe it, defenders wouldn't constantly play the pass, and he'd be more effective. We're stucked with him anyway... I just think he's been a liability because he's a one trick pony.

    I feel sorry for DD.
    Being a scapegoat for all the cr** hockey played by the team.
