How about 76 for 25?

I originally had it as a 3 year average, oops, but 7th is still great!
Pacioretty 8th, Eller 10th.
Umm check again. After sorting by Points/60, I have Galchenyuk at #2 behind Crosby
(however, Crosby and other players below him play against top D pairing and Chucky does not).

He played like crap in the playoffs , cause he isnt built for the playoffs
how the hell can he play third line , which is a critical checking line that a Stoll plays ? if he gets no pp time and isnt sheltered how the hell can he produce with weaker linemates ?
Listen I maybe hard on on his play , but call a spade a spade
we effed up resigning him , he is made for the regular season only , he is utterly useless come playoff time and NO IN THE FINAL 4 RIGHT NOW WILL EVER PUT HIM IN THEIR LINEUP
and with our lack of size and grit to begin with it make it more obvious he a bad fit he is for us
ship him to Nashville or Calgary where he can float , spend 1/2 the game on his ass put up 50 points and win nothing
Firstly, DD has played at the NHL level for about 2 seasons. Season 0.5, he was on pace for about 50 points. Season 0.5-1.5, he scored 60 points. And season 1.5-2 he was on pace for about 55 points.
Playoffs he has 2 points in 10 games. 10 games, what a large sample size...
Honestly, you don't have a clue about him. He has vision that most other C's don't have, including other 2nd line Centremen like Saku Koivu to name 1.
I know that eventually Desharnais may or may not be a part of the team moving forward (hopefully he won't) but until then he'll do what he does and that's for a 5'7" player, put up 50-60 points per season, good enough for #2 C. Until then let's keep a bashing to a minimum.
FYI, the following teams would have DD as an upgrade on their #2 C positions: Anaheim, Calgary, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Florida, Minnesota (but not for long), Philly, Phoenix, Winnipeg.
