Man these lineups are ugly. Individually, it's all OK players. But as a group?

Wouldn't want to be Therrien there. It's near impossible to arrange 4 lines with this. You've got 5 or 6 guys that are more suited as centers and you have to manage 4 small players (DD, Briere, Gionta, Gallagher) in the top 9.

At this point, if I'm the coach, I seriously consider DD on the wing. He's a smart player, maybe he can adapt his game.
Maybe he'll get his face smashed in the glass too. He's a disaster on the wing if you ask me and, before anyone brings it up, no, it's not because a guy of similar stature (Gionta) can handle it that Desharnais can.

Double D is the odd man out if the Habs want to groom Galchenyuk to become our #1 center, we'd have Chuckie-Eller-Plex as our top 3 and I am quite comfortable with that. I think DD gets traded at the deadline so we can get to that ideal situation.
