<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TanSor</b></div><div>Just looking at their roster, my initial guess was that guys like Danault, Suzuki, and Kotkaniemi were getting center priorities over him and it has caused him to struggle, but if it's worth ethic then yikes...</div></div>
At the start of the year Domi was given the 2C spot. He didn’t have an amazing start to the year, but went Drouin went out the whole team struggled. Since then Suzuki has been getting better rapidly, so much so that he’s now ahead of Domi on the depth chart. Since Suzuki was playing so well at C, and KK was still the 3C, Domi needed to play the wing. And Domi is a considerably better C than winger.
While I love his intensity and personality, it logistically makes sense for the habs to move him to make room for KK, Suzuki, & Poehling. Also I feel like he won’t be able to be used to the best of his abilities.
Having an outsider view on Matt Dumba, I think this deal makes a lot of sense for both teams, especially if the habs are trading Petry. I would like to ask if there’s any reason that Minny is willing to part with Dumba? Have people soured on him, or just a result of depth at different positions?
