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

In like 15 years.. when he retires with over 1,000 career points.

What a god damn myth. When has this ever been proven? Oh right, when he was producing with Pouliot, Pyatt, Darche, and White?
Cole was struggling before he was paired with DD and Patches/DD had chemistry from Hamilton.
Desharnais played like 3 games with Cammalleri and Leblanc last year. He helped get Cammy back on track (Cammy went on to publically praise him in the media) and Leblanc looked the most dangerous he ever has in the NHL during that stint. Cammy went right back to struggling after this stint (no idea why they were split up anyway).
There is no way to prove that he
Pacioretty and Cole to produce. They got put together because the team was struggling, started lighting the ice on fire, so they were left together. In fact, the proof seems to point that DD may be able to produce with just about anyone.
Give him Bourque and Galchenyuk. He'll still produce points. Although it will be because Bourque is so good and Galchenyuk developed that fast.
And PS. the only time Desharnais was in the playoffs, he looked pretty damn solid. And, as posted by someone earlier (I think Andy, could be wrong), Desharnais had 10 points (and like +5) in 11 games versus Philadelphia and Boston last year.
