Interesting. I like the fact that he's more comfortable with the idea of playing wing now that he's tried it in the POs.

Anyways he's a keeper, I don't know why people keep wanted to replace him.

He has drive which a lot of our players have been missing. He is a keeper, maybe some of that heart will wear off.

I think he'd do well on Eller's wing on the third line, with AK maybe if we acquire a top6 forward. That would be a well balanced and talented line.

Its too bad our current top2 lines are full of midgets since he could play top6 as soon as next year imho.

Love this guy. I was worried about how he would do in the playoffs with his small stature, but he was a spark on the gomez line when he got the chance to play. He adds a lot of skill to our bottom 6 for now.

The only reason to sacrifice this guy in a trade is that we have too many players which have the same profile.

On occassion, this guy was great. With the experience he gained, hopefully he can become a factor more consistently. But with the Habs roster as it stands... the Habs need guys with other characteristics more than they need a small, offensive foward.

Nice to see he's doesn't playing the wing, as that's where he needs to be next year. I like him, but there is no way Eller plays wing and DD isn't a good 4th line center.

This kid is the real deal. Due to his frame, he's always going to have to be used carefully to succeed, but he's got so many assets it's well worth doing what's necessary to create a role for him. He's got heart, drive, hands, vision and an incredible work ethic. Above all he's shown he is able to learn and constantly improve. Personally he's one of my favorites. I think there's an opportunity for him to become a legitimate first unit PP player. I hope he gets that chance.

I was pretty impressed by him in the playoffs he was one of our best players on the ice. He's ready for the big jump and at least take the second centerman position.

I've always liked him.. I was rutting for him since he was playing in the ECHL. I hope he lands a top 6 spot with Montreal one day but more importantly for him, on any team.

Let's hope the Habs find a way to make room for him on the team despite his size...

That's the perfect exemple of over expecting.. atleast 2nd line center? Are you serious? He isn't able to handle top6 minutes and he'll get expose defensively.

I like the kid, but imo he won't ever be a top6 center, maybe as a winger though. IMO, he'll be an elite 3rd line center that will provide 40-50pts while playing PP. In todays NHL, that's very important as you now need a top9 and not only a top6.

How can anyone determine that he can't handle top 6 minutes? The coaching staff wanted to slowly bring him along rather than throw him to the wolves. Not to mention that Pleks and Gomez had a lock on the top 2 center positions on the team anyway.

We have ... SCOTT FREAKING GOMEZ as our 2nd line centre. It's not hard to replace him. If Desharnais got exposed defensively, how much worse could it be than -205802585725772?

Anyway, I hope we sign either Jagr or Laich for the top-6 so that Desharnais can slot in on line #3 with Kostitsyn & Eller. That would be the most ridiculous 3rd line.

Keep doubting him though, thats what he wants. That's what his fans want. The kid is filled with heart and determination, but when people doubt him I think he drives him that much more.

I can determine it by what I saw last year. If you didn't notice, DD ice time was lower when they were playing on the road, because other teams coach would put his top line against DD and they were dominating him.

Seriously?

You're making that much fuss over like 23 seconds per game?

Not to mention, he played almost 2 minutes more per game on the road in the playoffs.

Anything else?

Road:
21 GP, 14 PTS, -2.

Home:
22 GP, 8 PTS, -1

Looks like he was more productive on the road to me (not that it matters much for a rookie).

Desharnais - Eller - Kostitsyn could be the best 3rd line (if Jagr signs here) since the Smurfs line (Petrov - Koivu - Bure).

Yes, cause stats means everything.. Perhaps he is better than I think he is defensively, but he is nowhere near the level you make him to be. You've been pimping him for 3 years now. I said it before, and I'll say it again, I WANT Desharnais to explode and become a very good top6 offensive threat, but he is not ready. Neither is Eller, btw.

Also, Gomez is miles and miles away in front of DD in term of defense..
