Look at the Plekanec extension thread. You will be surprised how many people were thrilled about it. You will be really surprised.

Plek is a big joke, and the blame is all on himself, he plays with no desire whatsoever
It would be nice if Radulov showed some of that intensity in the actual game. He wasn't much better.

No I won't...Again, I'll repeat what I said in that thread

The best part is it was just 2yrs as I was expecting him to sign for 4-5yrs.

I don't really have an issue with his contract, it'll be done this time next year, that's a pill that I can swallow.

What I commented on was someone saying no one could of predicted his offensive downfall.

That would be incorrect...A few people did

If I recall I was fine with re-signing Pleks and I was glad it was for two years only. I never expected him to become an offensive black hole though. Seriously that guy has fallen off a cliff.

And again, look at the thread. And show me the few people that did. Well....my comment in that thread was that I hated the money, I loved the term too. Yet, everything is about the playoffs and how he could finally show up. And he didn't. And still doesn't. So a downfall offensively....not sure. But a lack of showing up in important games? Absolutely.

Plekanec with a Playoff Warrior performance tonight.

Absolute clutch goal and monster game by Plekanec!

2 point night, tied the game with 17 games left when all hope was lost!

Agreed. About 10 years late

Now let's hope it continues, especially if Julien put some trust in him now.

Wow best playoff game ever by Plekanec. It's never too late I guess to become a playoff performer.

Off of the oft maligned Plekanec's stick, right in front of the NYR's Lungtwist, whose game became a living nightmare, once again @ the Bell Centre.

Go Habs Go!!!...

I can barely wait to see Tomas skating with the Stanley Cup held high, as the Habs become Champions once again in the new millennium!!!...

He must have gotten a new turtleneck manufacturer because he was cool tonight.

Definitely not a huge pleks fan but he still has that game 1 ot goal against Theodore and the Caps in '10.

He's not an utter playoff dud. Pretty big factor in shutting down Ovi and Crosby that year.

Good for him. They were pretty much the best line tonight. Let's hope he keeps it up.

I've **** on Plekanec a lot this year, but he has a monster of a game tonight. Good too see he can still bring it.

After the game in the dressing room, Canadiens public address announcer Michel Lacroix quietly offered Plekanec the puck from his goal. He suggested to Lacroix that he put it on eBay.

"I don't know, it's a goal," Plekanec said later when asked why he didn't take it. "I mean, I'm not going to take a puck for every single goal. It was a big goal but …"

Plekanec's words trailed off.

He is 34 and has had a tremendous career, 10th in Canadiens history in games played (921) and 16th in points (581), leaving a mark on the most storied team in the NHL.

But this season was a difficult one, and because of that it wasn't just another big goal, and at that moment he seemed to realize it.
"You know what?" Plekanec said. "I'm going to go take it."

That moment is one that is worth remembering.

This might be his last season with us, so for his sake I hope he has a few more of these memorable moments before these playoffs end.

It was like the Plekanec during his prime was back for one night.

While he can't get the old speed back, he did play with a certain passion tonight. It would be huge if he could play like this for the rest of the playoffs.

I want to see him on the power play over Shaw for sure. He's still good on the half wall imo. Radulov and Pleks on each half wall and Max in front of the net/in the slot.
