Again, I know this isn't a popular opinion but I would look at shopping Plekanec for a package of assets (NHL ready prospect(s) and/or draft picks)
If anything, our defense this season was a great case study in what happens when you move forward with inexperienced players and prospects. Plekanec is far from untouchable but the centers were the least of our problem this year.

This is why before we trade any core players I'd like to see how our lines do under a coach who can balance roles.
