why do you prefer Plekanec ?

I perfer Plekanec cause of he plays with more of an edge although Balej doesn't take crap when he gets hit, Pleks will dish out more on his own, which I feel is important for him to make room for himself out there. Although Pleks is smaller, he is thicker and seems to have more lower body strength, a big factor. I know Balej is tearing up the A, but in the NHL, his strength is a concern, we'll see how he does, I happen to like both very much. Lots of skill between them.
