I just think he will not improve. That he's on his way down while other players we have in the lineup that doesn't get his icetime are on their way up and we could be an even better team if we'd used them more. That's all.
Even if he is now a good 3rd line player. And will never again be more than
that. We don't have to put our three best players one one line, then players
four through six on the next line, and so forth. That combination on plekanec's
line is competing well against other top lines. I'm not sure that would be the
case with someone other that Gionta in that spot. So maybe this is where we
get the most for the 5mil. cap space.
And that doesn't mean he can't be moved if a better option comes up.
Or if we got to trade him for a good return.
