The thing about DD has been his unbelievable determination. You can see it in the way he goes into the corners and to the net against anyone, from Chara on down, and you can also see it in the trajectory of his career- undrafted, sent to the ECHL where he pretty much had to go after the record book to get called up to the A. Then in the A he worked himself onto the top line. This guy has had to face and overcome adversity just to be a pro hockey player, much less an NHL top line center.

His skill set is one thing, and it's elite, but it's his character and drive that make DD an NHLer. Hudon will have to want it BAD to deserve a comparison to Desharnais.
