It is not true: they
are driving that line. Though lately (not for the entire season: lately) the driving forces of our first line are Desharnais and Cole.
Actually, what I think people mean, also what I see and what every advanced stats I've read seem to agree with, Pac-Cole don't do all the job in the offensive zone(making plays, passes and all), DD plays a big part there. But they are the ones driving puck possession (Cole moreso I think, wich isn't surprising, he's always been one hell off a puck possession player even in hard minutes so he's gonna be beastly against softer opposition). DD has grown a whole lot in terms of opposition he can handle in the past year though, he always was a very talented playmaker.
