By amking that trade you force the team to keep an 18 year old as #2 center then it's a bad deal.

I wouldn't swap Plekanec for Ryan because Ryan is high maintenance and not really a guy you win with. People want to dump Bourque because he is inconsistant and soft well Ryan is dependant on guys like Perry and Getzlaf to produce and he is softer than Bourque. Plekanec is a multi faceted player who competes hard every night and you can count on. No way you move him without a ridiculous offer.

It's ridiculous to dump your captain just to open up cap space...especially when you need his 25+ goals and you have TWO Amesty Buyouts next summer. makes no sense at all.

On top of that your giving the Mighty Ducks a 2nd rounder.
