One thing that Zajac has on Plekanec is faceoff ability. Other than his rookie year, Zajac has been at 51% or above on faceoffs, and has been at 57, 55, 52, 53, and 51% every other year besides his rookie year at 46%. Faceoffs are especially difficult for young guys to adjust to(Crosby and Malkin were both terrible at the beginning of their careers), but Zajac has been very strong and only getting better.
On the other hand, Plekanec has floated between 48-50% for most of his career.
