It may be real problem if he`s not getting better.
I wouldn't say it's a problem yet (come on, it's his first game centering the second line) but it is something that has to be worked on. Koivu and Begin were both excellent in the circle (which McGuire reiterated time and time again) so Plekanec has to try and step it up. Especially since his wingers are not the most defensive-minded players and not too good at recovering the puck.
