Would all those who mocked me for saying Desharnais could make it in the NHL stand up

There's so much baloney in that sentence it's fattening just reading it.
Why don't we put Gomez between those two and see how they do. On more than one occasion Patches has credited DD and so has Cole. DD has the best vision & offensive hockey sense on this team. I'd say those two skills are elite. His stickhandling is excellent. As is his passing. His head on skating is above average but his quickness is top notch.
Yeah, he's small if he wasn't he would have been a top 5 pick. Very few players in the NHL have elite skills in every category. They're usually the generational talents. Every other player has flaws. DD's flaw is his size.
