The exact same could be said about Subban. Subban and Benn are pretty much equal value wise, maybe a 2nd or 3rd from Montreal would have to be added to even it out, adding Pleks in there makes it a horrible, horrible overpayment by the habs.

I think in order to get both from the habs something like this would be a good starting point:

To Montreal:

2013 1st

To Dallas

2013 3rd

The way I see it Subban+2013 3rd=Benn, Smith/Oleksiak+2013 1st=Plekanec. You could argue that it's an overpayment for Plekanec but he's good for between 55-70 points a season while playing just below Selke level defence.
