It's quite quaint and convenient, isn't it. If the line does well, it's because the wingers don't need Desharnais and would produce as much or more with a trained chimp as their C.

If the line doesn't do well, Desharnais is at fault.

On the nights they do so well, are we supposed to believe Vanek and Pacioretty have managed to dig in real deep to muster the energy to overcome the horrendous handicap that playing with Desharnais must be?

The pass to Pacioretty for his third goal was obviously a fluke. In fact, Pacioretty would've probably scored if he had shot from behind his own net on that one….
