I hate to tell you it doesn't always work out. but to get on guys like Plekanec and Gionta who work hard just because of their size shows flashes of ignorance and a misunderstanding of the process.
There are 4 kinds of players:
Guys who elevate everyone around them
Guys who need some talent around them to produce to their capability
Guys who are what they are, ie/ hard working grit guys with defined roles
and finally guys who are on the bubble and fill a role or spot until we get better.
Pleks and Gio are from the 2nd tier - wish we had a couple more
You cant have both Plekanec and Gionta on your second line and hope to be a contender. And they are two small to be third or fourth line players, hence why at some they will have to go, or else no cup for us. Not accepting this is a sign of low hockey IQ.
