DD, Grabovsky , Hudler types win you nothing if they are core players
No team has had these guys in their top 6 and won a cup
WTF is the point of paying him 4 mil when we already have stupid contracts on our books ?
Pleks overall is a better player , he can play both ends of the rink , the midget is a pp specialist , has no size , and cant play d
Worst case Pleks is your #1 and Galchenyuk can be your #2 til he is ready to take over . Eller is your three for now
lets not waste another bad contract on this guy , then regret it later
Really? Cause it kind of seems like you have an axe to grind calling him things like that.
He might be small, but he scored forty of his sixty points at even strength, twentieth center in the league in that category so I think it's fair to say he's more than a powerplay specialist. To put it in perspective, the year that Plekanec had seventy points, playing with Kovalev and Kostitsyn, he had only forty one points at even strength. That's good production.
And since when does a three and a half million dollar contract break a team anyway? Worst case scenario we just move him or someone else to the wing.
There's no reason why we can't keep Galchenyuk, Plekanec, and Desharnais. He's too valuable to this team. Cole's production only started taking off last year when he was centered by Desharnais. Pacioretty called him the best center he's
ever played with
. Showing Desharnais the door now would be among the dumbest things this team has done in the last five years.
