DD is not a legitimate top-6 center on a good team, I stand by that statement.

By the end of this season Galchenyuk-Plekanec will be our top-2 centers, which supports my argument.

It's amazing that anybody can think that Desharnais is offensively superior to Plekanec.

Plekanec scored 52 points last year playing with White, Staubitz, Moen, Darche, etc; against elite opposition; and disproportionately from the defensive zone.
Desharnais scored 60 points last year playing with Pacioretty and Cole; against tertiary opposition; and disproportionately from the offensive zone.
