I still remember last year, a lot of posters were saying that Desharnais is better offensively than Plekanec, lol.
I expect fans to react that way. What surprised me last year was when people from the media started calling DD our 1st center. Those guys should definitely know better.

I agree, but it's tough to know if that really comes from him or from not having stable linemates and constantly be dragged down by them. I mean, the only time he really had a great year was when he stuck with his linemates all year (both AKs).
Always felt bad for him, having to play with guys like Darche, Moen, Blunden, White, or struggling top 6 players.

Hopefully those guys can keep it up and this short year will be beneficial to them.
Having Plek play like he is now by the POs would be amazing.
