Desharnais is good enough for a 2nd line center role, nobody's going to convince me otherwise. I don't know what it'll take for our fans to stop underrating him. Is it the Napoleon complex again? Not every player on a team is going to be flawless. I'm not talking about building around Desharnais, I'm talking about a 15min 2nd line center. Not debating the fact Plekanec's better. He is. But: what's better? Plekanec at 5M to play on the 2nd line, or Desharnais at 3M with the addition of a top-6 winger/top-4 D acquired in a transaction for Plekanec?

Again, this is down the line, not right now obviously.
