Ultimately this is the answer to the question. The question has to be answered in the context the team finds itself in - several years and several prospect developments away from getting into the league's upper echelon.

This isn't a firesale, but management has to be minded to the end-game, and I think in this case neither DD or Plekanec are on the block, but neither Plekanec or DD will be around when the team eventually reaches competetive status. they will be replaced as better alternatives present themselves.
