White Gomez Armstrong
What next, Pacioretty on the fourth line?
Plekanec is the team's most experienced and complete center and last year's poor season should not make us forget he's also a very good scorer. Plekanec had a 69pt season when he was Desharnais' age after all.
Plekanec on the 3rd line is 5m$ spent to shut down opponents and score 30pts while getting criticized and run out of town. Plekanec on the 2nd line with actual good players is 5m$ well spent to shut down opponents and score 50+pts. Its very bad asset management.
If Plekanec plays on the third line its going to be in a few years, he will be great there then, when he's slower due to age and loses his quickness on the offense.
he's still at an age when he can put up points and should be given every chances to do so.
