thing is, Plekanec was used as a shutdown C... but somehow, now that Vanek has been taken off his line, he had no problem putting Gionta on the 3rd line and give Plekanec two offense first wingers...
somehow in MT mind, Vanek couldnt play a shutdown role so he put him on DD RW, and THEN he rearrage #14 line to give it some offense... (funny thing, pretty much everyone here agreed months ago that Gionta was dragging down Plekanec offensively)
of course he couldnt try Plek, Gallagher, Vanek or Galchenyuk, Vanek, Plek before (or Briere, Plek, Vanek, whatever)... he had to give his best forward to DD first!
