I mean, Datsyuk, Toews, Bergeron, Richards, Kesler, they don't play with crappy scrapers. Plekanec always had too, and never complained might I add.
So I don't think all those guys always played better than Plek in their 2 way role.
Not saying I wouldn't take them over Plek either, but I think Plek's lines always held him back. Like it would to most of those guys.
It hasn't always been that bad for him, he did play with Kovalev and Kostitsyn.
