This team will not succeed as long as David Desharnais is a top 6 center.

DD is a good center, creative and smart with the puck. he benefits by playing with the two best and biggest wingers on the team. play him with gally and gio and see what happens. Pleks played extremely well in very limited duty with cole and maxpac. point is, as mentioned we cannot have them as a 1-2. we stunk on the road last year partly because DD was eaten alive by the big skilled centers - shut down centers on other teams. and i mean massacred. he's a slick 2nd, maybe 3rd line center on teams with a big center for him to play behind. him and pleks is an accident waiting to happen. we're still way too small in our top 6. keep one of him or pleks - but i'd prefer pleks because he is bigger and has a far better two-way game.
in my opinion he's a seat warmer until gally is ready. eller stays where he is as a shutdown 3rd line center.
