Common theme of the draft is SIZE down the middle. What is the future of our C's?

Indeed. It's not hate against Desharnais. It's not the point. He's just clearly the odd man out.
Doesn't mean we should trade his ass tomorrow morning, especially with Gally still young. But the way it goes, I would go with Gally-Eller-Plekanec as our center line over the next few years WAY before giving a spot to Desharnais.
As others have said, Plekanec is our best center, and it's not even close. It's not just a question of points, it's a question of being able to be competitive in all areas of the game, and against all type of opponents. Desharnais is a specialist. Not saying he can't play 5v5 or anything like that, but compared to Pleky he's a tweener.
