...at $5M a year for multiple years. As I say, everyone likely acknowledges that he's a good player, and salary inflation is a reality in the game today. I don't know. Could go either way. I'm just not certain that the return would be justify the hole he would create on that Montreal roster.

They would absolutely need to know that they have their replacement lined up before dealing him, and while you can have simultaneous negotiations, I gather that Habs fans suggest taking the assets they get from Plekanec and trading those for his replacement. You would almost need to have a three-way negotiation, and those are invariably complicated.
