Yes, people were complaining of Koivu, but habs fans complain all the time.

I don't think people are overating Desharnais that much. Yes, he has his natural limitations, but what he does he does it very well. Personally he's a keeper, but maybe not in the role he currently plays. If the first line keep sucking I'm all for splitting it up.
Koivu was leading the league in points before his first injury. I don't think DD is better than Koivu at the start of his career and I'm not sold on him being on the top line again this year. Teams will be putting their best guys against the Maxpac, Cole, DD line I don't see DD having the same impact this year.

I wish a coach would give Eller a shot on a top 6 line and I fear that this organization is screwing up another valuable asset.
