He also said that if he feels that you're giving it your all and playing a good game you're going to have more time on the ice. Desharnais hasn't been very good in the last few games and I think Therrien should take some of his time and give it to the players who are more deserving, try to shake things up a bit. It's clear that Desharnais and Pacioretty aren't working right now and he also refuses to change the lines. My only question is why are they untouchable? Pretty much everyone else on this team has changed lines once in the season. Of course some of the comments are over the top, but we also have the right to call a player out when he's not playing well.
FWIW, I didn't mean you.
Look back in history of the thread. I agree with you as do most DD fans. We're confident in his ability as a top 9 forward but other guys may produce better on the PP for the time being. I will cheer whoever is on PP if it helps us win.
DD is not immune to criticism. Never said that. It's just same people waiting till one guy outproduces him or whatever. Gets old.
I think Eller should get PP time. Not sure about Galchenyuk just yet but I wouldn't be opposed to it.
