I dont mind darche on the PP. He is effective at creating traffic infront of the goalie. It gives the habs a different type of setup on the pp. I often see players around the goalie, but darche plants himself right infront. Its not like he doesnt understand his role. He wouldnt be there if one of the pp regulars was causing traffic effectively like darche is. It allows the point men to look at their shot as a more valid option.
