Holes need to be filled in a roster - what happens to Plecks (or other C's) when Galyenchuk comes? Voracek fills a need area in top 6 forward winger with SIZE and grit and scoring ....that other than Pacioretty, we don't have (or have in our system .....

crafty but small with grit + tude -
skilled + speed) I like the +10 years and useful talents of Couturier for the next 10 vs Plecks as "good as he is now" but let's face it ~ he's not on a contender and will get bumped / traded eventually. (don't get me wrong - he is a skilled "puck posession" 2-way center who's worth has never been higher to a contender). It's a future move that losing PK is the biggest loss and pill to swallow IMO!
