Does that mean he should be traded for a bag of pucks? I hope not, but it means he does have limits and it's why he's the one most likely to be made redundant by Galchenyuk in a few years.
I concur that Desharnais shouldn't be the go-to guy at 4 vs 4.
But he isn't, and he's a center, which means he's somewhat decent on faceoffs (48,4% so far) .... So he has to be there at some point. I'd probably use Plekanec and Eller at C before him, though. As far as 4vs4 is concerned.
