On HIO it mentions he's being dangled for a winger with size...

"While the Canadiens have dropped out of the playoff hunt and are looking forward to next season, they want an established player in return for Plekanec, preferably a winger with some size. "

WHY???

Because last year people said we needed to get bigger on the wing???

Umm... Cole, Pacs, Bourque. Those are top 6 6'2"+.

Eller, Moen, Blunden 6'2"-6'4".... bottom/top 6 forwards.

How about more centres with size? Leave the wings alone. Or get us a sniper on the wing. We've got enough big bodies on the wing now.

We have three big needs: a franchise centerman, a premier winger with size and a tougher 3rd defensive pairing. We can draft that franchise centerman this year, but we can't acquire a top winger without giving something up. But the only way a team gives that player up is if they're out of the playoff picture and, if they are, they have no need for Plekanec. The only way it happens is if we get a young player like Kuznetsov from a team like Washington that needs a 2nd line centerman and is in the playoff picture.

What is this?! We just had a thread yesterday where Plekanec was quoted saying how much he loved montreal and how he want to stay a hab his whole career. What changed since then?

I'd move Plekanec over DDH because of the potential return. Desh's value to us as a centre that has Cole and Pacioretty scoring in bunches on the same line is far greater than his value as a trading piece. I wouldn't trade Plekanec for just anything though, it'd need to be quite a convincing package.

However, my one glaring reservation in moving Plekanec would be it setting a terrible example, and would epitomize everything that's wrong with our management. Passionate player who we drafted and developed, brings it nightly even if it doesn't necessarily yield results, and seems to be one of few players actually upset with the current state of the team. He seems to "get it" as people say, I liked his comments about if you're not passionate, you shouldn't have the right to wear the jersey. So trading him would kind of signal the lack of pride in our organization.

So who knows, I'd probably be pretty torn if he traded him, and again the return would need to be substantial.

Not in the top 6 we don't. Bourque is a 3rd liner.

Plekanec for Canes 1st or Skinner

The thing is it's just as impossible to get a PPG+ centre by giving up just Plekanec. It would be part of a significant package, especially for top tier or just below type of player and not merely an offensively better at the expense of defense and attitude questions like Carter.

When you factor in Plekanec's reasonable cap hit (5M for a player who can do a little of everything really isn't something you can ever complain about, the fact that James Wisniewski is making more than that is telling) and home grown factor (it's not just about sentimentality, it's also about being comfortable in a difficult market and knowing what to expect), I am seriously sceptical you could replicate Plek's value to the team on the market. He has a reputation for being underrated league-wide for a reason, players good at a lot of things without being great or flashy tend to be forgotten.

What a **** storm this has become. Molson and PG are like Abbott and Costello. Just be prepared for a few years of total **** hockey is the owner and the GM stay together for a few.

Congrats Molson, you have taken this team in a year and made it a bottom dweller.

Once again, you've proven to be incoherent and useless.

What is the kind of stuff that goes with tanking? You mean the speculation of Pleks being traded or him actually being traded?

Either way, you're saying nobody should NOT want him to be traded else they should be watching a pansy show (your insinuation...not sure why Gilligan's island is the softest of all shows ever, maybe you have a trolly blog about TV shows too) + you're denigrating figure skating, in which case, say it to Jeff SKinner's face.

You're quite tough I should say that you're not actually watching the speculation of Pleks being potentially traded, yet, not expressing that you think it's a bad move.

Ps. I guess anyone who wanted Muller not to get traded to the isles (oh oh oh, that was me too when I was in middle school!) should also have started following, well, I guess gilligans island and figure skating existed then too.


Go watch Bill Nye the Science Guy, I think the quality of intricate experiments will blow your mind.

If the Habs are trading Plekanec then talk to Columbus about their 2012 1st round pick then the Habs can have the two Russians Yakupov and Grigorenko/Galchenyuk.That would take the heat off of Howson with the Bluejackets record with Russians.

Last time I checked, we had some of the biggest wingers in the league. Cole, Pacioretty, Bourque, Kostitsyn, (Eller when he plays wing)... I think we can lay this "wingers with size" dilemma to rest, we need a skilled winger to complete the Top 6, doesn't need to be big. I think Justin Williams would be great alongside Bourque as our 2nd line wingers.

you'd think as a gesture of contrition, he'd reduce the price of beer at the BC by 20%, you know to only make it 40% overpriced.
