To me it`s a given that next year:

Saku(1st line)
Bonk(3rd line)
Plekanek(4th line)

Or you can have Bonk on 4th and Plek on third.

As for Begin, he fit well with Bonk as a winger.

Meanwhile it`s imperative that we should get a physical(or at least bigger) centerman to play on the first two lines. If we not, we won`t have a progression.

Could you give Pleks even less credit?? He is on the small side but in opposite to Ribs, he can skate in this league can shot and is stocky enough to play against any centers in the league.. Didnt he prove it against Eric Stall???
