I am one of the people on this board who is bullish on Lars Eller, so I don't think losing Plekanec will take years to recover.
I think that with Galchenyuk-Eller as our top-2 centers we can compete for 8th place in 2013-2014 and be a dark horse stanley cup candidate as soon as 2014-2015.
As such, if we can get good value for Plekanec, and he should in principle have very high-value, I'm all for it.
