Clearly meant his current contract (4-years @ $2M per), not the extension he just signed.

Although, on another note, Burrows @ $4.5M is still a discount/deal for them (it was signed before the lockout was over). He is a guy who puts up 25-30 goals, plays all situations, plays a hard nosed style, a great team guy, and wears a letter on his jersey. Probably would have got $1M more on the open market.

Patrick Roy has said that he spoke to Bergevin about this issue and he knows that DD is too small and the odd man out. Only thing is it will be the most difficult decision as GM to date for him, but he knows in order to have a winning line up DD does not belong as one of the top centers.

And what Pacioretty said about DD: What do you expect him to answer? French media shoving microphones in his face asking him about DD all the time. He doesn't want to cause controversy. Pacioretty has always been a solid player without DD.
Haha, he'll be back next season.

And Pacioretty has talked about Desharnais many times. Including when he was still in the minors. Pacioretty loves playing with DD, it's obvious both on the ice and when he speaks. Trying to downplay this is just being ridiculous.
