In a fantasy league, DD is definitely a 2nd line player. He may even be a first line player.

He's got a lot of things to adapt to still in the NHL, but he's adapting quickly.

Would anyone choose Desharnais?
What does this have to do with a fantasy league? The question should be;
"If you have one center on the Habs skating on a breakaway with the game on the line, who would it be?" Desharnais.

Or

"You're down by 1-goal with 30 seconds left, which center do you want on the ice?"
Desharnais.

PS. Just because Desharnais isn't as good as Plekanec and Eller defensively (who are both dynamite) doesn't mean he's bad. It just means he's not incredible in the defensive zone. He got better defensively as the season progressed and he'll only continue to get better.
