I don't doubt he's a gifted playmaker but I have severe reservations about him as an all round center.
Do you think Desharnais is capable of improving his all around game though?

While he's older than other sophomores (and he isn't truly a sophomore either), I think it's easy to forget that Desharnais is still developing. He seems to me to be a student of the game and relatively malleable still.
