Which I think was a big reason they did it. During the lockout, Ribiero and Dagenais wanted to play for the Bulldogs, but the Org refused. They wanted Pleks and Higgins to get top line ice time that otherwise would've gone to Ribiero. They made Plekanec take the long route, but the org also treated him as core asset.
