He never really had an awesome year in the AHL.

Desharnais is also about 3 years older than, eller, isn't he? Eller did have his awesome year in the AHL. When he came back from being sick, he went on a tear. I think I remember people saying he had mono or something like that.

I do agree that it's probably best to not rush our players. Our young guys should only be graduating when they're pushing vets out.
