Plekanec is underpaid relative to his contributions. If you move Plekanec to create cap space, you have to find an even more underpaid player.
Are you serious?
This team finished 15th in the conference...you realize that's last right? They were the 3rd worst team in the NHL last year.
This is a team that's been turning around in circles for almost 20 years, they finally reached near-rock-bottom last year. And you're worried about decreasing the quality of the team?
It might be more difficult to find an upgrade to Plekanec (which I don't even think is necessary mind you) over Bourque.
But it will surely be more difficult to trade Bourque, then it will be Plekanec...
I find it funny when fans want the GM to improve the team by getting rid of its least desirable players...it makes no sense.
