Whatever...of course fans of the 29 other teams could care less if Desharnais replaces Gomez on the 2nd line.
The point is that the kid is looking quite good. 6 points in his last 3 games and clearly has an NHL level skill set. The size thing is unfortunate, but at this point he looks certain to catch on in the league...be it in Montreal or somewhere else.
I think he is starting to form into an NHL player, nobody doubted him as much as me and his vision...at least in the leafs game was unreal. I think he could become a top 6 center.
However, he has only played ~20 games and penciling him in as a top 6 player already is ridiculous. Look what happened to Pouliot when the pressure hit him, Lats, Ribs, etc. I think everyone needs to stop saying he will be the best thing ever and just cheer him on. We dont know that his attitude is like PK's, or Price's and as history has told us it wont be.
Cheer the kid on, ya. Don't expect the world of him and although he is playing better than Gomez and I want nothing more than to get rid of that bum he isn't ready to take his place.
I am glad we called him up, I just wish we could start playing Eller at C!
