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

Desharnais will be a RFA this summer and he's 1 year away from UFA. The time to make the decision is this summer.
Galchenyuk must play center next year. Period. The longer we put off him learning as a NHL center, the more time it will take for this team to someday be a contender.
Really ****ing tired of being a shrimp team down the middle. We've gone from Koivu-Perreault/Gilmour to Koivu-Ribeiro to Koivu-Plekanec to Plekanec-Gomez to what we have now. Enough is enough.
(I like DD's crafty style but he's only 5'6 and needs to be surrounded by our best tall/big Power Forwards, which takes away from spreading the wealth to our other lines...we need to get bigger/taller...Pleks,Eller,Galchenyuk...and maybe draft another big/tall center).
Next season (if up to me):
as top 9 winger (backup top 9 center).
our Habs lose a lot we could also pick up
another big/skilled/gritty center during the Draft
(top 3-5 overall pick).
(emphasis on word IF!), or I'd be very happy with a
, as well!
