I'm not a fan of Desharnais either, at all in fact. He's a part of any last place team. A very one way center.

However, I understand the move: he's the best alternative outside of the draft. You let him go, he's not going to give you a return anyway. Sign him, then have a kid replace him later. OR hope for the Lecavalier style player to fall on your lap at some point + this style of asset management will give you more trade options as you bank assets over time. Gauthier left this ship with not much to trade when he didn't milk the few assets he wanted to sell. Bergevin is rebuilding 2 teams.
