It depends where you put him, if you stick him in the role Pleks had last year with less than great wingers and tough matchups against the Malkins, Richards, Girouxs, Crosby's and Staals of the East then he would definitely fail.

Plekanec is by far the #1 Habs center but you can't stick him with Cole and Pacioretty and give him the best offensive situations because DD and Eller could not handle the tough minutes...at least not all of them.
