DD ending up being a PPG player is clearly in the realm of possibilities (however unlikely; ending up with a .85 or .9 PPG is more realistic). That (1 PPG) would make DD untradeable, and 0.9 PPG would make him virtually untradable, unless Plekanec ends up in the same "range" of points. And, let's be reality here : both ending up in 0.85/.9 PPG range is pretty much impossible, unless DD or TP is switched to wing next to the other. And that won't happen.

If anything, it might comes down to how much DD will want to get paid this summer... which will mainly depend on his play in 12-13 (if play there is).
Actually, Desharnais becomes a lot more tradeable if he increases his production.

It's pretty ridiculous the lengths we are willing to go to ensure that Desharnais gets to play his game while trying to re-organize the rest of the team. If Desharnais can't fit in the long run, then he is the one that should be moved rather than others moving to accomodate him.
Players like Joe Thornton, Evgeni Malkin, and Henrik Sedin, who can give you 100 point seasons, are worth reorganizing your lineup around.

The same is not true of 60-point players. It might be true of 80 point players, but that's a tough call.
