That's where i got a problem. With all his PP time and the best offensive wingers and all those Ozone start......he should be running the show offensively.

That is his role.

But on the PP he create next to nothing, Eller produce as many points with 20 minutes of PP instead of 95 for DD. Is he playing his role well?

Our 2-way center Plekanec, who is facing top opposition night afeter night, who supposed to be our shutdown line.....he's better than DD offensively right now. Is he playing his role well?

Nevermind the fact that our 3rd line center (who is playing with Armstrong, Dumont, Moen and Prust) is almost right up there with DD offensively.

DD is not bad offensively, actually he is allright....but should be better than Plekanec with all the advantages that he got, he should be WAY better than Eller also.....but he is not.

So because of that, i wouldn't say that DD is playing his role well!
Not this year at least
I love how you conveniently leave Galchenyuk off your list for Eller's wingers. Galchenyuk has almost as many points as Eller, Desharnais, and Gallagher.

Also, Gallagher is not a better offensive player than Michael Ryder. Let's be real here.

DD isn't the only one not producing on the powerplay, yet I don't see threads and threads on those players. Why do you hate Desharnais so much when he's signed to such a reasonable contract? Is it just because he's taking ice-time from Eller?

One thing I would be interested in doing is splitting up Desharnais and Pacioretty though. Pacioretty and DD just aren't clicking right now. Usually when that line creates offense, it's DD and Gallagher or Pacioretty and the defense. They are also terrible defensively (all three of them) because they are always too deep.

When Bourque returns, I'd love to see;

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Ryder
Bourque - Desharnais - Gallagher
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gionta
Prust - Halpern - White/Moen

But I guess we'll see.

Desharnais is going nowhere this summer. Maybe in future years, who knows. But he'll be a Hab next season, no doubt about it. There's no law against having depth at center.
