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).
There is another centreman. Galchenyuk. But he really can't be used there until the other top lines are getting points consistently.
The offense has been abysmal recently. Until this changes, I guess we can only hope Price continues to play well.
