We already have a no1 for the future and his name is Galchenyuk. This means Desharnais can be a second or even third line center in a exploitation role. Or a winger in the top6. Its not like we have a surplus of playmaking forwards.
a filler as a first line center until Gally arrives in MTL - thats true. Were you take a strange logic leap however is when you appear to think its no1 center or nothing. For instance say we acquire a better left winger than Pacioretty does this mean we need to trade Pacioretty? You can have multiple good players at one position, its called depth, and that is what wins stuff. Its not unheard of for teams to have more than 4 natural centers in the lineup and its certainly not a bad thing - not only can we replace an injured player easily, we can even do so on the spot! Its also good for faceoffs in important situations - center no1 takes more risk and if he gets thrown out of the FO circle center no2 can make a good effort.

But Desharnais should be able to play Monday against Pardubice (CZ) in the European Trophy, since this competition is not under the auspices of the International Ice Hockey Federation.
If Simon Gamache is a good player there Desharnais is going to be an elite superstar
