On the other hand Desharnais has had multiple opportunities to showcase himself but he hasn't. Desharnais hasn't had a single good game let alone one good period, so don't tell me we should give desharnais more opportunities to succeed he's had plenty while eller is forced to play in a position he isn't comfortable in.
Give eller six games in the same position desharnais is in and we shall see who plays better, enough with the hypotheticals I want to see what eller can do in a top six centre role with pp. To be honest I don't even care if desharnais is scratched or not he could play on Eller's wing for all I care, I only suggested it because desharnais hasn't played well and I think that's the easiest fastest way to send a message to a player.
All I'm trying to say is give eller a chance in his natural position.
While I have no problem with the idea to scratch DD due to his poor performance, scratching him in order to make room to the ONLY player who has been worse than him so far is completely senseless.
