Impossible!!!
Actually if anything, it shows that he along with Cole and Pacioretty were sheltered compared to Plekanec and Eller.

For league comparison's sake, look at where some of the other centers who got similar points to Desharnais last season were.

Here's a list of the C that were around 60 points:
David Legwand
Ryan Getzlaf
Stephen Weiss
Ryan O'Reilly
Paul Stastny
David Backes
Olli Jokinen
David Krejci
Mike Ribeiro
Patrice Bergeron
Logan Couture
Valtteri Filppula

I think Desharnais et co will be able to handle better competition. But to suggest that his line wasn't somewhat sheltered based on the stats on the graph isn't true.
