Desharnais is a good player. I like him. He's a heck of a second line center and I'll be angry if he's ever let go/demoted to 4th line duty because he stops producing for five games like every other point producer we've ever had (Kostitsyns, Grabovski, Ribeiro, etc).
Also let Eller play goddammit. He's the most creative forward and best puckhandler next to Desharnais, and he's the fastest skater on that crap team. But no we won't let even near the ice on the powerplay ever because Scott Gomez and his 2 goals and 4 assists needs that PP time with Travis ******* moen in front of the net so we can keep having a 0.06% efficiency. ****'em all.
Cole is better than all of them still. And after that it's crap. And I'd argue all of them aren't true first line type players (at least not yet for Pacioretty and Eller, the other two never will be). Cole/Pacioretty/Desharnais is a nice line and would make a sick 2nd line, but they're just a decent to good first line.
I hate that we always ******* play with our goddamn lines. Stick with a plan, don't ******* change them every ******* game gosh. Andrei K was ******* buried on the 3rd for so long. But hey let's get Blunden and Yannick Weber on the first line IT'S GONNA WORK!
Don't insinuate cunneyworth knows his **** please. He might be the least creative coach in the history of all sports. Gauthier doesn't care about quebeckers. Cunneyworth is the one putting him on the first line because he prefers working hard at chasing the puck rather than actually having the damn puck.
