Swap him out with Plekanec and then just try to make sense of the lines. Situationally, things get all screwed up.

Also, it reduces our budget flexibility and prevents us from addressing actual needs. We aren't in the market for a center. If we go a million and a half over budget to get a new center, that's money we have to cut from elsewhere. It's also money we can't spend on a top six winger.

Plekanec is the better player. Trading Vermette for him does not make Phoenix a better team.

The deal makes both teams less effective. Montreal significantly more so. It's much, much worse trade for the Habs than the Yotes. It's still a bad deal for both sides.
Very well put, rt
