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.
If Simon Gamache is a good player there Desharnais is going to be an elite superstar
all I am saying if DD is on your top 6 you wont win anything
like I said before , on the Kings last year , where was he going to play
NO WHERE ... but the 13th forward
Brown , Carter , etc.... he wasnt going to play on this team
they play a tough in your face game with grit and DD would not fit on that team
