Could Plekanec be the one on the way out ?

Plekanec is and has always been a perimeter player who shies to go in high traffic areas and in front of the net. He's a player who works hard at both ends of the ice with exemplary work ethic, is very good to read the play in the defensive zone and has above average offensive potential (50-60 pts). He is a player that can be very valuable for a team to help it get in the playoffs, but once there he becomes less valuable because he shies the high traffic areas and the front of the net unlike DD for example. He will get the job done in his own zone but in the offensive zone, it will be hard for him to have any sort of impact. In fact, to me,
he doesn't look at all like a Michel Therrien/Marc Bergevin type of player
Please... Plekanec is a player THAT EVERY COACH and GM will like. He is a professional, a hard worker and responsible player. Every single coach will like him. You don't need to be the grittiest player to have success in the NHL. Plekanec is a player capable of 60-70 pts with top 6 wingers and he will also be a great defensive player at the same time.
Plekanec is here for a long time now and not a single time he has to face any criticism or any kind of controversy. Saying he's not MT or MB type of player because he's not gritty enough is just stupid.
