I'm not a huge Desharnais fan and think he has shortcomings and isn't an ideal centre at all for the Habs, but I appreciate his game, love the backstory and local connection... and I'm sorry but he's easily a good enough player to play top nine on any of those teams. If he didn't it's because the teams adopt a third line checking line where he doesn't fit that role, but to say he's not a player on those rosters is pretty ridiculous.
