I don't want to see Desharnais on the 3rd line. He needs and deserves big,strong, skilled winger. I also don't want him to play the defensive aspect of the game, which your 3rd line usually does. So far, there is not a single reason to break Desharnais's line, Pac and Cole aren't 3rd line winger.

If by a miracle we land Grigorenko,

Pac - Desharnais - Cole
AK46 - Grigorenko - Gionta
Bourque - Eller - Leblanc
Moens - Gomez - White

Gomez would probably be gone + Plekanec trade would land us something really nice (much better then Eller would) (good draft pick or good young winger that could replace Gionta eventually)

So what your saying is, Trade the best number two center in the league, draft a number one centerman and make him play behind a journeyman second line center ?
