Making it one vs the other is stupid. I still think Plekanec is more important to this team going forward, but the two of them don't even have the same role.
He was particularly good at holding on to the puck tonight and waiting for something to happen before moving it (compared to many other players who'll get rid of the puck while trying the quick - and usually bad - play. Sure, he'll get his head ripped off every once in a while, but it's because he tries to make things happen. And if he's willing to pay the price, where's the problem?

But it does show how absurd the height thing is.
Habs' best line tonight had 2 Smurfs on it? Really? Didn't notice

Amen to that!
