eventually, the habs are going to have to acquire that long sought after #1 center...but to do so, they'll need to free up some money (hence why I'd advocate trading Plekanec) and they'll need to acquire some assets (Plekanec would bring back a good package IMO).
Plekanec would be fine as a 1a/1b center or as a #2 center... and 5 million for his production does not prevent you from getting a top notch number 1.

The issue is, was, and will continue to be Scott Gomez's salary... until that is used on a true compliment to Pleks, we will be lacking a top 6 centre that is necessary.

If you get rid of Pleks and don't get a Centre as a return, you are now missing both a first and 2nd line center.

I like DD but he just isn't good enough as a 2nd liner, more suited to line 3.
