Massive... really? We're talking 120 faceoffs for an entire 82 games seasons. Most top6 centers take 1000 to 1500 of them yearly, sometimes more (and Desharnais is 15th (1371) for FO taken, Plekanec is 3rd (1678).

While this stat shows Desharnais was used in a more offensive role than Plekanec (something extremely obvious and understandable considering Plekanec is by far our best defensive forward and also one of the best in the league) its not nearly enough to say he was sheltered or anything like that.
