The amount of people who can barely contain their elation now that they can finally bash Desharnais is pathetic.
Nobody ever proposed that Kostitsyn was an untouchable first liner and wanted to trade every other winger on the team to make room for AK. A team can afford streaky wingers on the 3rd line when nobody else on the team can even dangle the puck. Merely proposing Desharnais experiment with playing on the wings last year was akin to blasphemy.

So if there's an over the top reaction (I wouldn't call it "elation" even from the haters that our so called first line is useless), it comes from a previous one.
