Plekanec doesn't have high trade value relative to his usefulness because he's a jack of all trades.
Eller will probably be traded next year with the arrival of Galchenyuk. Plekanec will not be traded until two center are as good or better than him. I think Plekanec will be traded in 2014-2015 if Galchenyuk perform well.

If Desharnais repeat, his value will still be better in Montreal than the return we could have. He his 4 years younger than Plekanec, he his local talent and his contract is really good right now and i expect his new contract to be reasonnable between 3 and 4.5 million per year. In my view, there is absolutly no reason at all to trade Desharnais in the next 3 years.
