It seems like a lot of people have forgotten all that Pleks has done for this team in the past 5+ years. He was given a defensive mission and he accomplished it. He has been a scorer when given the chance, he's a phenomenal passer and tbh he has pretty decent finishing. He is a valid candidate to be the captain (if Gio wasn't already) and has stood by this organization being a leader. We are lucky to have him, to have drafted and developed him and it will be a sad sad day if he leaves. For those who don't think he's produced offensively, delve a little deeper past last season and also consider the role of a two-way forward (and a damn good backchecker at that). He is not the problem. Bourque not being what he's supposed to be IS the problem. Fix that and watch that line's production be dangerous (with a healthy Gio).

I shudder at the thought of our PK without him at the top of the diamond or whatever formation we're using. Everyone knows he was frustrated by all the bs surrounding the team last year. He's a serious guy and wants to win. He's not just playing for a contract. He's playing for us to win.
