I don't get the overreaction. This is possibly the worst possible time to sign Plekanec because his value is at a premium and because of the rush to sign players before the trade deadline. Agents use this to boost their demands because they know full well that teams will want to protect themselves against loosing players for nothing.
There is a risk that we'll loose him but, on the other hand, this gives the team a chance to truly evaluate his value from now until the end of the season and, more importantly, during the playoffs. This might very well bring his demands back to a more decent level and that's only good for a team that's not in a very good position cap-wise like the Habs.
