Desharnais, a really good 2nd line center?

Desharnais got size problems, but he is actually faster than what suggested by most and is actually pretty decent along the boards. All in all, think of a manlier version of Mike Ribeiro.
On a 30 teams "league", DD is a low-end 1st C (with the right surroundings) or a high-end, albeit untypical, 2nd C. Good job setting him up with JVR and Okposo. The comments on the first page (re. Desharnais not being a good C) actually says much more on the knowledge level of their authors than about anything else.
a prototypical #2 is Kessler , Brindamour, Bergeron , not DD
