On the plus side, David Desharnais at least chipped in five assists while he wasn't putting the puck in the net. He's predictably had a hard time matching last year's 60-point breakout, but Desharnais is quite reasonable in the role of a secondary scorer. (Updated 4/25/13).
David Desharnais continued his development with Montreal, earninig a larger and larger role as the season wore on. He eventually dislodged Tomas Plekanec as the as the center on the first line, showing good chemistry with team-leading goal scorers Max Pacioretty and Erik Cole. Desharnais is a trusted player, who takes faceoffs and plays on both special teams units; his 17 assists and 20 points on the power play led the team. Head coach Michel Therrien will keep the top line together to open the season but there will be a top-six spot for Desharnais should the coach feel the need to restructure his lines. (Updated 8/14/12)
