Just remember all the two on ones the habs had on the pk these past couple of seasons with Plekanec passing the puck to Moen and Moen missing the net... He's not second line material, and Plekanec can't do everything by himself... Just my two cents.
This sounds like you're saying that's who he'll be sidled with this year? Far from it, I think Plekanec will play with Gionta and Galchenyuk, if Chenny can't cut it [looking less and less likely] Bourque and Gionta is not a bad pair of wingers.

based on tweets/reports/everything I predict this will be our opening night lineup:

Pacioretty-Desharnais-Cole
Galchenyuk-Plekanec-Gionta
Moen-Eller-Bourque
Prust/Armstrong-Prust/White-Armstrong/White

Markov-Emelin
Kaberle-Gorges
Bouillon-Diaz

That is not bad, gets better if Chenny proves he belongs, even better if Markov stays healthy, better still with the addition of Subban.
