We won't regret not trading him.
Plekanec has consistently been one of the hardest working players for the past 5 years. He never gives up, and he's been given really crappy roles on this team. Now that he's being given some linemates with the same work ethic as him he should be able to show us how good he can be offensively (like his big year with Kovalev and Kostitsyn).

A lot of people around here want him gone, but a lot of people around here don't know much about hockey and get impatient way too easily.
