Trading Desharnais isn't a good idea. Players like him are always undervalued compared to drafted players that are bigger. If we trade him one on one we'll get a 3rd rounder, a washed up guy or a no potential 4th liner. Then we'll potentially see Desharnais score 50+ point seasons for someone else. Sure if we keep him its possible we end up having no place for him (if he fails to maintain a high level of play) but it doesn't really matter since he's very cheap and can be 13th attacker, which is probably about as good as anyone we could get for him. At best he'll be a top6 player, and there is no way we can trade him for one of those.
