Could Plekanec be the one on the way out ?

In the longterm plans, it's really DD that doesn't fit. Unless somehow we can find someone to replace Plekanec's 200+ PK minutes.
You know there's a reason why DD was surrounded by our best wingers... and it's not to satisfy the so-called french media... it's because he was able to produce.
Eller is nowhere close to DD offensively, he has mad skills but his vision and hockey IQ is still developping... to say he would have "eclipsed" DD's production is like saying he would have had like 80pts... Eller is going to have a very hard time achieving 60pts in a season in his career.
I still believe in him because of his age and package, but don't short-change DD because you don't like him.
