Dont get me wrong... its always nice to have a 30 goal scorer, but he seems to be talked about around here as the saviour to our centre ice problems, and I dont see it. Sure, he's got size over pleks and he scores more goals, but pleks is a strong pk guy and a better playmaker IMO. Its not a huge upgrade overall, even if Carter is bigger.
Here's what I don't understand, why do you need your second line Centre to play PK. Lapierre, Pyatt ect....those are the guys that should be playing PK. Montreal should give two ***** about Plekanec being good on the PK. No way in hell should Montreal pay Plekanec 5 million because he can play the PK.
If Pekanec wants 5 plus million let put up Gionta Cammalleri type effort come playoff time. Montreal already has a overpaid C able to play the PK (Gomez) but at least showed up for playoffs!
Plekanec's ofence can adequately be replaced by a guy like Brock Trotter or David Desharnais at a fraction of the price. Plekanec 70 points / 5 million or one the Hamilton guys 50points at less then 1 million and add a gritty winger who will pot 25.
BYE BYE Pleaknec.....I love Plekanec but only if he stays at 3.5 and no more!
