Plek would be the number 2 guy(for the moment), Gally third center. DD would have to be moved to the wings or traded.
Plekanec definitely doesn't DISAPPEAR in the playoffs, but he often has to shadow stars on the opposition which affects his offense. Plus in may seasons, his ice time is not managed(1st PK 1st PP plus a ton of 5 on 5 ice time) and he wears down a bit.
He was a big factor the year we went to the conference final.
