Every player with maybe the exception of Price, Markov and Koivu are "expandable". It all depends on the return. I can't speak for others, but I'm thinking here that in order to get a player of Horton's caliber, you don't trade your garbage. They'll want quality and as you stated yourself, Plekanec is quality. As a matter of fact, I think that Plekanec for Horton one for one is pretty darn close to make the deal work. We may have to add a solid prospect or pick, or someone like O'Byrne, but that's it... because of Plekanec being a good player, not because he's slumping.
