55% would mean that 55 GF are score while 45 GA are scored.

Desharnais went from being first in 2011-12 to 10th.

It does not show quality of opposition.
And if you went deeper with your stats from your link, you'd see that Desharnais faced relatively easy opposition (Hart QOC) and benefited from offensive zone starts (OZFO%) aka he was being sheltered just as Galchenyuk was last year.

Does he play on the PK? No. Does he play defensively? No. Does he impose himself physically? No. He seems to have improved on faceoffs, I'll give him that. But apart from that, he's contributing ZERO to the team right now.
