Reportedly, Plekanec's camp demands are very high, in the order of 6M. I really don't see Gauthier giving him this kind of money. If they don't change their position, pursuing other options become more interesting; it may involve a trade, but it could also make our team better than we are with Plekanec. All this will have to wait for draft day, or around draft day.
If that is the asking price then the Habs will have to say bye bye. I would give him 4 mill for 2 years and no more. We will handcuff our team if he is given 6 million, he does not bring enough to get that much money. I like him but we need some more size at center and maybe he can be replaced with a UFA.
