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.
So to put things on an edge: Either Desharnais or Eller will need to move over for the other to take his spot. And you hope/think it'll be Desharnais due to Eller being more able to serve as a third line center. Right?

Are they giving DD more EV TOI to raise his trade value or is it just poor talent assessment you think?
