Anyway about that plus minus thing... we all know that it matters if your in the + on a sucky team, like Subban and Gorges last year or if your in the minus on a really good team... + it's more important to look at it with defense players.
Over the years, some players had something like +30 but there's a lot of factors that comes into play. Linemates? What his role on the ice?
It's all about even play, that doesn't count with special teams... Montreal didn't score a lot of goals at even play last year
So for patofqc... When you think that Montreal sucked big time for scoring goals last year... and you add it to the fact than Plekanec was used a lot of time against the best offensive lines where his role was often to shut them down and he had crappy linemates all year long... it tends to give you some bad +/-.
Plekanec have a positive +/- over his career... give the guy a break.
Yeah block anyone who as a contrary opinion to yours, this will make your discussions much more fun. We should all have the same opinion, it would make for a better world!!
Opinion can't be wrong, except yours on Plekanec.
You're just trying to seek attention, or just don't understand the game, or hate Plekanec. What you said about Plekanec is just plain wrong on all levels. When everybody disagree with you, maybe you might reconsider your "opinion", unless you want to feel special to get all this attention on you.

MTL's Tomas Plekanec appears to have cracked his ribs in Kladno's game tonight vs Trinec. He was taken to the hospital for further testing.
Probably a month needed to recover from that.
So if the lockout ends, either Gally is our #2 center...or the tank begins to roll with Gomez as one of our top 3 centers (lol).
Cracked ribs isn't a month injury, NFL players play with it all the time and football is much more physical than hockey. The earliest an NHL game would be played is in like 17 days, so I doubt he would miss much time if any.
Best case scenario is a good week of negotiations and a deal next Friday, then 10 days for camp/exhibition.
