His ES production is better than last year and that's key, especially for the playoffs.

You're going to get sick of complaining about him .. you've got 4 and 1/2 years left.
False.

Last year, he had 40 ESP over 1186.43 EV mins (Avg. production of 2.02286964 ESP per 60 EV mins).
This year, he has 15 ESP over 461.35 EV mins (Avg. production of 1.95079656 ESP per 60 EV mins).

The production is similar although it was better last season but you'd expect more given that his line is provided with soft minutes, which include a high % of offensive zone starts.

As it stands, DD is currently behind Gallagher, Pacioretty, Galchenyuk, Ryder and Eller in terms of ESP production per 60.

Once Galchenyuk is ready for 1st line duties and produce like one (which may take anywhere from 1 to 3 years - or more), I expect Desharnais to be moved to the wing (if not sooner) or traded.
