And Plekanec has looked very good when he's had opportunities to play with Cole on the rare opportunities it has arisen since the slow start.
His decision making with the puck has been below average, but that tends to happen when you play with useless wingers
Again...ignoring Plekanec's performance and just looking at his wingers is disengenuous.
Goes both ways...he needs to be MUCH better next year, or it won't matter who is playing with him.
Look at last night's game...I counted at least 5x's where he failed to make a simple pass on a rush and ended up losing the puck or getting bumped out of the play. Habs need A LOT more from Plekanec.
Biggest disappointment by far for me this year...he hasn't played up to the standard we've become accustomed too, and this goes back to the 2nd half of LAST year. Again, Habs better hope he bounces back, or else....
