I respect your constructive opinion but disagree with you. Do not get me wrong. I like Plek, but top 6 forwards of CONTENDING teams make things happen during the playoffs and don't just retract and backcheck. Your arguments have been served since 5-10 years by Sharks' and Canucks' fans, while these teams have seen their window disappear. Good GM's make the tough decisions and leave the emotions away when they are committed to win. Look at the Bruins' moves since 5 years...

By the way, would the Bruins have Plek as a top 6 centerman...answer the question and this might put some light in your arguments. BTW, Plek's contract is too expensive to keep him as a 3rd center...just in case...
