In a couple of years if Galcehnyuk and Eller develop as hoped, this might be an option. Right now, if Montreal trade Plekanec, the biggest immediate need instantly becomes replacing Plekanec. What would the point of that be?
Habs shouldn't just trade Plek by giving him away. It's more like getting an upgrade since we have small centers on the first two lines.
