|Montreal plans on having him play right wing. He was missused here.|
Dandenault improved quite a bit as a player thanks to switching..he would never have stuck around so long if he had just stayed at forward. Remember, he did not play 70+ games until the year he switched to D, and last year was the first year he dropped back under 70 games. He also fell out of the top six with the emergence of Kronwall, and was used at forward many times later in the year.

|I love Dandenault. It seems he scores more goals defending rather than being a forward. I love his versatility and that he can do anything. Kind of like Brandon Inge. So whatever he likes better and what the team wants, is fine by me.|
Just, Dandy doesn't put up good numbers, and isn't considered to be an All-Star Candidate.

To sum up... Dandy is a poo poo head.

With his speed and versatility, he was a great player to have around. If he was still here (assuming that we would have still made all the moves that we have since he left) then I would have played Dandenault on the wing. With Delmore and hopefully Simpson added to the Wings blue-line corps, we would have had enough depth back there to allow Dandenault to move up to RW.
Playing Dandenault at RW on the Grind Line with Draper and Maltby would have been great, as although he wouldn't have made up for the loss of the pure grit and toughness of McCarty, he would have added a different dimension that McCarty never could; speed and a bit more offensive talent.
The Grind Line would have been probably as good with Dandenault at RW as it was with McCarty there, but it would have been a completely different line in terms of it's character and makeup.
