He said that he thinks that he can move around as the season goes on and that it's better to start on the third line and finish higher up than the other way around. (La Presse)
Desharnais, 31, spent last season with Montreal and Edmonton.
Adam Rotter: The third line is very likely to be where Desharnais will start with the Rangers. He won't be asked to be one of the players to carry the offense, like he was at times in Montreal, but he will still very likely play with skilled players and hopefully create offense. He's low risk and if he doesn't work out the Rangers can likely play him in Hartford and have him as an option if need be.
