Desharnais is the most creative and arguably the best playmaker on the Habs, with Markov being injured. I think he has a lot of upside, so I wouldn't count him out just yet. It's a bit unfair considering how he's been the one feeding the puck to our two best goal scorers on the team since they've been put together.

Also, it is completely false to say he's the "targeted" player on the Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole line. They are playing great as a whole and it is pretty obvious, to me at least, that the leading player on that line is Cole.

I know me posting this won't change anything but I seriously doubt we're going to have 50 70 point 30 goal scorers.
Well, Pacioretty is currently on pace for over 30 goals, and I'll say it again, he has 36 goals over the last 89 games, so it's definitely a possibility.
