Hopefully draft Grigorenko, demote Gomez, trade Desharnais or move to wing.

I get not wanting to break up our top line but let's not go crazy, Desharnais has developed into a somewhat productive player. He is not as valuable as Plekanec (who is probably the perfect 2nd line centre on a championship team) or as well suited to a 3rd line role as Eller.

He's a top 2 C on a non-playoff team. Great he's in the league, now let's move him to a floundering team so he can continue to be a decent 50-65 pts centre on a Columbus or something. We have to set the bar higher (excuse the pun) than Desharnais. Grigorenko is it.

Then acquire a solid 4th line centre. Give Grigorenko-Plekanec-Eller-? time to settle in and you finally have (if the 4C is great) a terrific mix up the middle.

You do Grigorenko-Desharnais-Eller-? and it's not nearly as strong.
