Plekanec is our best defensive forward and he gets destroyed when he misses as assignment. Remember the first Bruins game?

I don't blame Desharnais for the goal, but he hardly moved there and he should not be absolved from criticism.

And yes, he is generally a below average player away from the offensive zone. That doesn't mean he doesn't have his uses - look at Ryder for another example of that, but it's something to consider going forward - and hopefully a part of his contract negotiations.

This is not about language, don't make this a political debate.
