Fourth, Plekanec with Jagr, baby. Book it.

I just don't seen any negatives other than "oh Gio is our captain and he's a trooper".

Now as far as adding a 2nd pick, well it's a matter of them being worried of taking Gio's contract.
First of all, Gionta only has 1 year left at 5 mil, his contract IMHO is a non issue.

Second, Jagr was a ghost last year for Phillie. He did nothing the last 4 games if I recall despite 1st line ice.

Third, trading a pick just to dump a contract when the player is on your 1st line and producing plus is your captain is dumb.
