Put him in a playmaking winger role with a two natural goal scorers in Gally and Patches, and you've got a terrific top line.
edit: potentially terrific, lol.
I get the St. Louis comparison because of the size and they were both overlooked but in style of play they aren't really comparable. St. Louis takes a tonne of shots (he's a lot like Brian Gionta in that way though a better finisher) while Desharnais rarely does.
Offensively Desharnais is a lot more like Alex Tanguay - rarely shoots, but has a higher shooting percentage than normal.
