I don't see the argument here. On the wing, .51 PPG, as a center .74 PPG and being part of the career years for himself, cole and pacioretty. Yes, let's put him on the wing.
Again...that PPG number as a center is his first 43 games getting any real minutes in the NHL. He was also getting much lower minutes with worse linemates than he did last season.

You're not answering either question.

1) Why can't Desharnais use his vision on the wing
2) Who are comparable guys to Desharnais that have set a precedent that this is a true and viable option?

And again, not saying Desharnais can't have a great impact in the NHL, I just don't see him as a top 6 center though. 3rd line center with some skilled size wingers, or top 6 winger...but just not top 6 center.
