I'd take Plex off your hands but I can't imagine that now would be the time to move him. Or DD, because who signs a guy then trades him? Bergevin ain't Holmgren.
And in the other thread I offered Robidas+Fraser for Grabo.
It's not the most popular move for a GM in the NHL to do a sign and trade HOWEVER, a signed DD at a reasonable cap hit is worth a lot more than DD as an RFA. He was going to get a contract anyway, just so happened that it was the Habs that gave it to him. Eller is coming to the end of his RFA years but is seen as the replacement for Plekanec in the long run. Hopefully, in a couple of years, Eller and Galchenyuk will be the Canadiens 1-2 centerman.
From a fans perspective, DD is the most attractive player to be moved. We have several players on the team and in the pipeline of similar stature and style, Eller and Galchenyuk are our future and Plekanec currently carries the team in a big way. It would mean taking the team in an entirely different direction if Eller or Plekanec were to be traded.
