JuniorSTLB Posted July 11, 2011 Report Share Posted July 11, 2011 Well, let's look at it a different way: Is David Desharnais an NHL calibre player that you want to see in a Habs uniform for one full season? Is DD capable of being a 4th line player? What situation would use his skills and help the team? IMO, Lars Eller when healthy should be a full-time Center. He needs to play and Andrei Kostitsyn needs to play with him. The question is who plays with them. What does the line lack? I would say a distributor. David Desharnais fits that role. Is he an ideal LW? Absolutely not but I think he would help the team more as an undersized 3rd line winger than an undersized underutilized 4th line center. Eller and Ak's size could compensate for him. I agree. Neither Eller nor Desharnais deserve to play limited 4th line time. Desharnais is obviously the better 'current' player right now, but Eller showed some major flashes at the end of last year lol. I'd like to see a line of AK-Eller-Desharnais. That'd be an exciting line to watch. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
