They are small, not overly quick, but have good on ice vision, are feisty and have great puck skills.

I'm not saying Desharnais will ever reach Brière's level, where I'm heading with this is we have been putting Desharnais aside because he's a center and we have no room for him. Though, Briere adapted quite well as a winger even though he is small... Maybe Desharnais could also translate his game as a left or right winger and we could keep him in the organization. Because with Plekanec, Leblanc and Eller, I see no room for Desharnais in the future as a centerman.

What do you think?
Briere is bigger, thicker and a more explosive skater.
