We all know that Gally will not be in Montreal on opening day.

Could Eller not play a big part as second center behind Desharnais ?

What if Gomez went back to his old ways under Therriens new coaching style and given more liberties in carrying the puck ( his style of game ) and not asked to dump and chase which was obviously not his game at all.

Don't get me wrong, i don't dislike Plekanecs but he is a fairly good playing card for management ( contract wise ).
I don't see Plekanec going anywhere in the short term future. Trading him right now would set forth a chain of events that would make it harder on Eller and Galcheyuk's development as right now neither is ready for a top 2 center role.

Plus Plekanec is coming off a down year, trading him now would mean only 60-70% of his value by trade. Not to mention he is an important cog in the wheel and the team wants to get back in the playoffs next year.
