Plekanec is also an accomplished left winger. If we get Jokinen and keep Plekanec, we can use him at left wing, and when Koivu slows down a bit more we have centers a-la Dallas right now. Jokinen, Plekanec, Koivu with Chipchura or Lapierre rounding out the 4.

Next season it looks like (using arbitrary lines):

Plekanec-Jokinen-Kovalev
SKost-Koivu-AKost
Lats-Chipchura-Kosto
Begin-Lapierre-Stewart?

Then down the line it's (again, arbitrary lines):

Latendresse-Jokinen-AKost
SKost-Plekanec-MaxPac
____-Koivu-_____
____-Lapierre/Chipchura-_____

I don't know how it would work, but if we can deal Jokinen without dealing Plekanec that would make for a VERY secure future at center. Listen to me go on. I'm not even a Jokinen fan.
Plekanec sucks when playing LW.
