And if I'm looking to make room "right away" for a top offensive rookie centre and put him in a role where he's allowed to make a few mistakes and develop his creativity, I'm giving him Desharnais' minutes; not Pleks' (i.e. trading Desharnais to make room, not Plekanec).
Agreed. Rushing Galchenyuk and then giving him Plekanec's minutes is a recipe for disaster. Plekanec is facing the top opposition night in and night out, getting also a majority of his starts in the defensive zone.

Oh alright then. Let's trade the whole team in that case, since they have worked out very well so far, together as a team having finished 15th.

PS: Hockey is a team sport.
