Umm Desharnais isn't a two-way center and doesn't face the best opposition. He faces the weakest.
I'm not sure that's true. DD gets more offensive minutes, and less
defensive minutes. But that doesn't translate to weaker opponents.
I would imagine that most coaches put out their top D pairing against
his line last year. And probably tried to get their top line out if they
were solid defensively, because they could then also try to exploit
DD relative defensive weakness. I think DD got his 60 points against
strong opponents.
