Captain Fluff is actually one of my favorite players on the team, but even I have to admit he's just too soft. He showed it last year too.

I think he'd be a good chip to get someone with more sandpaper. Do you think Plek's value might be high enough to get something decent in return?

He has great skills and is good defensively so I am sure someone would take him.

I believe he has an interesting value in the trading market...from the our prospective....(Habs)

However his value was a lot higher last year I believe.

I wouldn't trade him, solely because we have no depth at center. Besides koivu being injured, Lang isn't young and our prospects at center aren't ready to make a huge impact. Does he has good value? Depending the team, yes I think he does, although I feel he has more value in a package than straight up. Plek+Latendresse for Jay bo? I would do it, just whatever, we have no one to replace him right now.

i'd be willing to trade him for a less talented C who can grind, but i think most teams wouldn't want to trade those kind of guys..

I think you'd have to package him to get a good second line center back. They need a bigger center with actually jam to his game. Pleks has been playing scared from the last years playoffs till now. You aren't going to win with him.

there isn't much out there. Its apparent this version of Pleks is going to need a guy like Lucic on his wing. Someone who can do the dirty work and finish. Montreal doesn't have anyone like this.

Montreal lacks balance. Too many skilled, playmaking, perimeter, inconsistent offensive players.

i just don't see Fisher with enough offense for the second line role although you could argue Montreal isn't getting that anyhow.

Unfortunately Montreal likely needs to start looking for a first line center and bumping Koivu down. They need his replacement soon. How you attain this is beyond me.

Do not trade him. Regardless of his scoring slump, he continues to be the Canadiens' hardest working skill player. Night after night, he works hard and generates something, even if it doesn't show up on the scoreboard. It would be a massive mistake to trade this player.

Plekanec is definitely not the problem. It would be dumb to move him.

Sundin is the answer, but it's basically out of our hands. We've done all we can so far.

I liked what I saw from Plekanec late in the game. However the lines need stability so they can grow a chemestry. Honestly, who has played with more players than Pleks so far this year?

Kovy gets a lot of the blame but at least he competes out there, Plekanec keeps retreating to the blueline or losing the puck each time he has it. Him and Tanguay are both playing like scared little girls.

Yeah, exactly what we need another Lapierre...works hard but no finish.

We could use a guy like Horton.. if we can package Plekanec with a salary dump and a pick/prospect.

I still wonder why everybody is panicking. Sure right after the loss you're right to be frustrated, but we outshot the opposition once again, we played well defensively, and many players have hit the post many times. We've been lucky at the beginning of the yer, now we are struggling and we're not as much. Good things will happen if we keep on playing like we did in the 2nd half of the game.

Just look at Pittsburgh. They're struggling much more than we do lately, and their fans are not panicking as much as we do.

Last year, at this point, Pittsburgh was not even making the playoffs.
Two years ago, Ottawa was dead last in the league in December.

Guess what they did...

Maybe package him up with Lapierre, He's pretty invisible most of the time.

I'd trade him for draft picks only if Gainey can sign Sundin as a free agent, but that's highly unlikely. I wouldn't get rid of Lapierre. He's improved a lot and I like him as the 4th line centre.

Lapierre has been the hardest working player on our team the past 2 months.

And he is a homeboy.

He isn't going anywhere, I love that guy.
