Nothing at all has been changed. His line gets by far the most offensive zone starts of our forwards and he doesn't play against the oppositions top line. His line does dominate even strength though, so he's doing his job out there on even strength.

But don't deny that his line is put into the position to produce offensively more than others on this team. But some of the best players in this league are used in exploitation roles. That just puts Desharnais in the same group as Tavares.

And while Desharnais is playing with two wingers who are also dominating posession out there, his corsi is higher than Gallagher (but not the ridiculously Corsi-friendly Pacioretty), so he's not being carried.

I still want to try him on the wing though.
