Actually, no it's not. Playoff lines of the two post seasons each has contributed to the Montreal Canadiens:

(season, age, games/goals/assists/points, TOI/game)

Gomez

'09/10, 30, 19/2/12/14, 21:10
'10/11, 31, 7/0/4/4, 19:42

Total: 26 GP, 18 Pts, 19-21 mins/night

Desharnais
'10/11, 24, 5/0/1/1, 11:04
'12/13, 26, 5/0/1/1, 17:14

Total: 10 GP, 2 Pts, 11-17 mins/night

Desharnais fans aren't going to like seeing that, but he hasn't even produced as well as Gomez, nor "earned" as much ice time, when it matters most. Less than half the cost for less than half the production/worth is fair enough though, I suppose... but if Desharnais must be compared to Gomez in order to justify his worth to this team...
