No thanks to Eakin. He is not what the Habs need, and definitely not for Plekanec. Eakin falls into the same category as Galiev, meaning not what I would want.
Laich and a 1st sounds closer to fair. In all honesty, though, I think I would hold out for Johansson and a pick. Joahnsson has the size and is young enough to grow with the other kids on our team. Now, I like Johansson, but wait until he has done a bit more before you start asking the Habs to make it Plekanec+ for Johansson. I would be happier if Johansson were more physical, and would offer more if he were bigger. He is an interesting piece, but is definitely not worth Plekanec on his own.
