If Plekanec isn't signed before the deadline, the sensible thing to do would be to trade him now and (maybe) try to sign him in the offseason if he's not signed before then. That is good asset management for a team that is nowhere close to a contender. The reason we don't progress at all is precisely because we keep losing good players for nothing and we have no good young guys to replace them (a combination of mediocre drafting and not getting assets in return for the players we lose).
It takes 2 parties to negotiate a deal. A sign now or we'll trade you policy is a very tough stance to take. I'm not opposed to trading Pleks, but there had better be a fool proof plan in place to replace him come next October. Not sure that's even possible.
