Because then you are decreasing the quality of the team.

You can of course move Plekanec, but it is much harder to find an upgrade over Plekanec than to find an upgrade over Bourque.

Plekanec is underpaid relative to his contributions. If you move Plekanec to create cap space, you have to find an even more underpaid player.
