I don't even want to try to predict this trade deadline in such a weird season. Desharnais has value (not as much as before the season started, unfortunately), and I think a deal with a western conference playoff team to secure stronger depth in D might happen. But who knows, it's a silly year. He's due for a large pay raise, though, and with the cap going down Montreal is going to have to make a choice about it sooner rather than later. Bergevin has shown some backbone and willingness to make bold and potentially unpopular decisions despite being a rookie GM, so I'm cautiously optimistic that the right decisions will be made.
