Aside from that, you did not understand what the second part of my post was about. Read it again and keep reading it until it makes sense.
I understand what you mean by that Desharnais actually costs the Habs games by not producing at the level an average player would. That said, here in the context of the Montreal Canadiens, the next best player at the position is Ryan White. If Desharnais wasn't playing those minutes, though some would go to Plekanec, Eller and Galchenyuk moving at center, the rest would go to White. Habs won't roll with only 3 centermen after what we saw against St. Louis. They'll need another centerman at some point anyhow. All I pointed out was that we're in the middle of the season and you won't simply find your average replacement over Desharnais at this point. He's the best option left (or at least minimizes losses over other options like White).
