Let me preface this with they wouldn't, because Legwand's contract is at 4.5 a year for SIX FREAKING YEARS, so it is contractually insane.
However, in a one on one situation, Legwand is a leader. He fills a need for Montreal, which is a physical top 6 player. He's also a complete package.
He does get hurt, but given most people seem to agree that a huge part of Montreal's problems rest between the ears, Legwand is exactly the type of guy that would help there.
Offensively, I'd say they're on par. Taking nothing away from Plekanec, I'd give the defensive edge to Legwand. I'd give physicality to Legwand. Thus, in a perfect world where there is no cap or money, I'd take Legwand.
