If he returns and if he's still the #1, we are in deep trouble. Even with better linemates, people need to freakin realize that as much as he's a god, he's aging. You can't have a #1 centerman who can't play more than 20 minutes.

People need to freakin understand that it can't be solely on performance but on opportunity. Clearly I would keep Koivu and dump Plekanec. But who wants Plekanec and at what Price. Great news about Plekanec is that he's in no place to ask for a big contract. Same thing for Higgins. Still, people see how Plekanec conducts himself in the playoffs.

But then there is the Habs factor.....the factor that makes players bad here and once they leave they become much better. This can probably be taken into consideration. And especially the Ryder factor, the one awful season that is automatically transformed into a reborn season immediately after.
