I love this argument.

He played with Cammalleri, Leblanc, and others in the last few weeks and he still produced. But whatever people can say to give the kid less credit, eh?

As for the topic question, I don't know, but I doubt it. I love Desharnais and Plekanec, but Plekanec will turn the switch to another level down the stretch (and when Markov returns). Desharnais may as well, but being his first season, it would be unfair to expect much more than the 50-points he is on pace for.

Where you wearing Malone's jersey the other night? I think Emelin might have smoked you.

In all seriousness though, this is a flat-out lie. Desharnais played 19 1/2 minutes at ES against Tampa the other night. That lead our team, FYI.

He also averages 13:48 at ES this season. So I'm not sure where you're getting your numbers.

And to call Eller our 1st line centre is just not correct. In fact, I wouldn't really label our top three lines at this point. They all have different roles.

Eller's line is going to get a lot of ice-time to shut down opposing teams. Plekanec's line is, well supposed, to chip in offensively and play a sound defensive game. And Desharnais' line is supposed to provide a lot of offense.

The line letting us down on most night's is Plekanec's (and not so much his fault as it is his wingers).

DD was already producing with Cammy.

Which is why I have no clue why they moved Cammy off his line again.

I think Cammy had like 5 points in 3 games with DD (or something similar) and a handful of scoring chances.
