The only player I'd might choose Darche over is Nokelainen, but Darche isn't a centre so he still has no place.
We can make almost four full lines with the amount of bottom 6 players the habs have.
Leblanc Eller Armstrong
Prust White Moen
Palushaj Nokelainen Geoffrion
As I already mentioned I am a happy fan because Prust will play Darche's ES and PK minutes.
That being mentioned Darche (Moen/Bourque - Plekanec - Darche was a very solid shutdown line) is better than Nokelainen (though Nokelainen is a right handed faceoff specialist), Geoffrion, Blunden and, until proven otherwise, Palushaj (he did show glimpse of emergency) and Armstrong (if someone can jumpstart him, it's Therrien).
