Something does not compute.
Good catch

Plekanec might play on the third line one day but hopefully that day is a couple years down the road. Currently Plekanec is by far the most complete player on our team, his capacity to adapt and play at a high level in various circumstances make it necessary for him to play on the top6.

I think next season should be used to properly evaluate what we have in hand and the next year we acquire more scoring depth if necessary so we can have more scoring options. Adjustments can be made in-season, as we all know lines are not set in stone and can be changed at whim so its a bit pointless to argue over it like it were a life or death issue. Its just better to start the season with at least one line that we know has chemistry and start from there.

One thing tho - that line might need to be split on the powerplay.
