I'd say trade Pleks and keep Deshairnes and Eller. Yeah, it would tough for a few season, but we're one of the least skilled teams in the league. So it's not like we're going to win a cup anytime soon. Just let those three develop along the way.

As I said when that was discussed before, Radulov was not going to return to North America to play for a lotto team, and if we trade Plekanec we are basically guaranteeing ourselves to be bad for at least another year.

For a team like that Radulov's rights are less valuable than a 2nd, because he has all the cards and has no incentive to return to the NHL unless he's going to get his way.
