Empty statements like this are useless unless you have a concrete reason behind it. Please give a logical reason why it's time to "Part ways". Plekanec remains our best C in terms of production, two-way play, special teams and attitude. When was the last time Plekanec was injured? When was the last time he coasted through a game? He would be one of the top #2 centers on any team in the league. Whether or not you see it, Plekanec carries a lot of value.

The one and only reason we would trade him would be for the possibility of better value in return. "Possibility" being an elite prospect like a top 1st-round pick. If we'd trade him in an apples-for-apples move for an equivalent player, we'd end up creating a hole as big as the one we fill, with a new guy who may or may not fit.
