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.
Great first post. It says what needs to be said.

Only thing one would need to add is Desharnais' poor numbers on the road.
