I know a lot of us get ultra sensitive when discussing Desharnais, but to be honest moving him wouldn't be the end of the world.

Either way, the NYI wouldn't do it, so it's pointless to discuss it I suppose.
We're trading a guy who was top 20 in centre scoring last year for a prospect who put up 1 point in 60 games. I'm not saying Niederreiter's career is ruined forever, but there is "high risk/high reward" and then there's sheer lunacy borne out of nothing more than the fact that Desharnais is 5'9".
