We already have Desharnais' replacement in house, just a matter of letting him grow/develop while letting DD increase his trade value with more points plus a higher cap. It would be dumb to alter that plan for a worse one.
I like this fantasy where we start off with the assumption that a bottom-6 centre is good for 55-60 points (let alone a player who has done that once in his career)...

More points might convince your Xbox that he's worth more in a trade, but I think the market has already spoken on the value of bigger 2-way guys versus smaller players who are highly reliant on their linemates for production.
