I know this is my first post so I don't want to sound like a know it all type, but, I have to ask: do some people on this board watch the games or only the highlights? Or just look at the stats? Or watch l'anti-chambre and get their opinions there? I mean no disrespect but based on some of the comments, I have to ask.

Deharnais: -played with the 2 best wingers most of the season.
-played on PP.
-in fact, was used strictly (almost) as an offensive player.

He had 60 points

Pleks : - played with..........mostly a bunch of nobodys (offensively speaking)
- played against the best most nights
- had a defensive role every night
- always on penalty kill, last wave of PP. (Please don't talk about his time on the blue line. That was a joke and everybody knew it except for the coaches.)

He had 52 points.

He had 8 lousy points less than our supposed first center.
If the Canadians get rid of this guy because of 1 good year by Desharnais, it will come back and haunt them.

I like Desharnais, but he's not as good as some people think, not yet anyway. It's just 1 season.

And all this for only 8 pts gap?

Hopefully Therrien will use him wisely and not defensively.
