If one guy earned his spot on this team - and its his to lose to a better player - its him.

Now the ''what if'' rethoric is endless ... but as long as he progresses well , who knows what kind of player he will be in 2-3 years ? When you see a guy steadily getting better and better ... saying he's going to be a reason why this team will lose down the road is quite depressing.

its like saying with subban on the top 2 pairs we won't win a cup. just silly, even if it ends up being true. correlation=/= causation.those statements are based on gut feelings... and people should stop trying to turn them into arguments.
Nice arguments and you've presented them nicely too.

Although I dont agree at all.

DD is not as himself the reason why it will lose, its the place in the team or the importance he holds that will make us lose.

Yes, I think Desharnais is "soft", yes, I think he should be a winger if anything, and yes, I think Tanguay is much better than Desharnais and always has been. But I still would have replaced Tanguay, too, so... Desharnais obviously still has no place on my Habs roster.
Maybe a bit drastic.
