-Desharnais has elite vision... see Markov and get back to me
-Desharnais can't handle hot passes, rolls off his stick most of the time
-Desharnais has a below average shot
-Desharnais is a slow skater
-Desharnais is always one step behind the play
-Desharnais is average on face offs
-Desharnais can't play wing due to the things I listed here

Where does that leave him? Maybe a second line center in the AHL, a pp specialist who can be called up in case of injuries. But to pretend he's the number one center and we should give him 5 million$ a year over 5 years is a joke and what frustrates me the most and is the reason why I'm extra harsh with him. It is nothing personal, but I hope people can see the truth behind all this propaganda. How many times over the last 15 years we've overpaid a local guy that turned out to be busts? Calling me and some others racists because we want to see the best team possible whatever language the players and coaches speak is racist itself.
Well said. Alot of people drank too much DD koolaid and wanted to trade Pleks over the summer. He's had one good season and now that other teams know what he brings to the table. That first line with Cole and Patches were effectively shut down. DD is a 3rd line center at best going forward once AG27 is ready to play on the first line.
