desharnais played very well. almost always ahead of the play, plays bigger than he is, and makes plays like he can think faster than his linemates, he makes these perfect passes that his linemates can't see coming... loldarche. not sure if that reflects bad on him or his linemates.
i love to see him play, mostly cause it's hilarious, like a pee-wee playing with the big boys, but he has not disapointed. im happy he's getting pp and pk time, but to me he was far better on 5-5.
before the season ends, id love to see him with actual players, no darche or pouliot. though that line was pretty deadly last game and played very well against atlanta
Goaltenders and coaches are now better...imagine Crosby playing back then, with all the run and gun offences...200 pts would happen...
Goaltending is the single most improved position in any sport in the last 20 years. It's night and day, between the technique lowering the % and the size and quality of the equipement... It's unbelievable.
How often to you watch a highlight where you see the goalie challenging the incoming shooter and he's all the way out in the middle of the circles and the just kinda kicks a leg out (standing up, too) to try and stop him?
