I'd like to take this opportunity to quote myself because I fully agree with every single character in your post.

He's forever underrated and underappreciated. Defense, faceoffs, offense, PK, PP...guy is an all-situations player. He's Jason Pominville and Patrice Bergeron without the flash and slightly inferior production. He's the glue that holds our top-6 together. I'd even go as far as saying that if you remove him from the combination, we're not even a playoff team, let alone a 2-seed.
Some would be happy if we unloaded Plekanec for Antropov because he has, gasp, SIZE!
