And that changes what exactly?

The best players are all exceptional, I'm not sure thats a reason to worry about Desharnais.

It is a given that the 1st line center job is Desharnais' to lose at the start of next season.
Better to extend him now. He won't be eager to sign a contract with us if he fears for his place on the team. He's more valuable to us signed for a few years wether we end up keeping him or not.

Plekanec was the first line center coming into last season, the job was his to lose then. He has more pressure than Desharnais.
