Well you sign Pleks, and there's no spot for him on the top 6. He then becomes a 3rd C playing with Pyatt and Moen. Not sure I'd give that to him to start his confidence as well. Though it might be a start they'd be willing to give him. But then, he plays great. He surprises, he's up for a top 6 role 'cause again AKost or Pouliot struggles...what do you do? Trade Gomez? You can't. Trade Plekanec with his new 6 years 5M$ contract? Will you have any takers?
If you want him in a top 6 role....you either have to take the bet that he's ready RIGHT NOW and let Pleks go. Or you play him to the wings. Or, like I said, you move him to the centerman position once Gomez contract is up.
