He sucks at D , he has literally no understanding of the game.

Putting him on the wing would take defensive pressure.
So you want Plekanec and Eller to be our #1 and #2 centers(assuming Gomez is #3 or #4). Wow. I guess mckinnon will look good in a habs jersey.

I defy you to find me one top 6 minute getting centerman in the last 20 years to win a Stanley Cup.

I love what he brings to the table, and I think the potential is there for him to move to the wing and be a continual top 6 guy, or even maybe be an absolutely lethal 3rd line centerman allowed to face inferioer competition due to great depth on the team.

Or maybe he proves me wrong.

But I just think he makes the most sense to move to center.

Also, when Galchenyuk comes in to the picture unless they move a guy who played center in junior, to the wing...they need to move (through trade or realignment) a guy anyways. Why not do that now? Provided Galchenyuk isn't on the team of course.

Why shouldn't Desharnais be able to use his great vision from the wings?

I look at a guy like Eller with goal scoring acumen, speed, size and 2 way capabilities and I think Desharnais would look great on his wing.
Eller is a shadow of Desharnais' offensive vision. I don't mean to disrespect Eller but Desharnais finished top 20 in center scoring. I don't understand what more he's supposed to do.

I really don't get it. Desharnais was on the wing and did MUCH better as a center. So, put him back on wing?
