Plekanec = Petrov

It's now official Thomas Plekanec has the Oleg Petrov syndrom. He's speedy, he has good hands, he shows some nice flashes but HE CAN'T SCORE !!!

I think he's a good player for the habs but when he has a scoring opportunity he always take the wrong decision.

Maybe he'll find the way to scores goals like petrov did in his last years with the Habs but for now.......

Let's go Thomas you have the skills to score 20 goals so put the **** in the net

2007 = Stanley Cup

Except Plekanec's fundamentally strong, wins his battles along the board, and is a center, which are pretty key differences. But, sure.

Plekanec's a career third liner playing on a scoring line. It just doesn't work. He has hands of stone and no finish to match.

I said that since Day 1. Plekanec isn't a second line center. Plekanec can't finish.... He's not a good fit on the second, not enough offensive.


Plekanec can't finish.
Plekanec isn't a second liner center.
Plekanec is horrible when he got a scoring chance.

Not really.


Its sure we will lose some game through the season, I really don't care. But this is not the first time I made that comments.

He got no scoring touch. Kovalev give him atleast 1 or 2 very good scoring opportunities each game and he always struggle. Kovalev would have a lot more points, so people would stop complains about that, Plekanec can finish. If my capture card was still on my PC, I would make a video of last 5 games to show you how he suck on a offensive role.

(I'm not bashing him like if he's not good, he simply just not ready or talented enough for play a scoring second line center.)

Plekanec has had terrible luck this year. I still think he has hands, especially when he tees up and shoots off rockets (that subsequently hit the post...).

If anyone saw him play for the Bulldogs, he was a more offensive type of player, who was a lot like Saku. I'm not sure whether he lost his hands from that time, or whether he has just been a victim of bad luck.

As far as him being like Petrov, I think that's extremely unfair. He does the little things extremely well such as looking after his own end, winning faceoffs, hustling constantly, and making plays for Samsonov and Kovalev. He needs to find a bit more consistency offensively, but otherwise, he is leaps ahead of Petrov as a player.

Yes it was started early in the game... Perez= Petrov seems more like it to me.. I think plekanec is better than petrov.

I've said it a long long time ago. If you think that plekanec can be a legitimate second center, then you're going to be disappointed. This has nothing to do with tonight's game.

I think petrov is much more common to samsonov. Samsonov has better hands but petrov made up for his lack of hands with his relentless work ethic.

Funny, 'cause I had\have the same impression when I see Samsonov play...ok, he's a better finisher(!) then petrov, but all around the same type of player.

But that's just me!

Desagree . At least , Bullis had one 20 goals season . Petrov also i think , but if not , at least he finished 1 or 2 nd scorer of the team one time .

Plekanec is a very good 3 th liner , but he sucks as second liner

Plekanec is just snake bitten. His chance tonight alone to Thomas' left was not a real chance Thomas played him perfectly. He has a great shot and is an above average passer. Give him time, I am not saying he will be a consistant 20+ goal man but his numbers will improve with a few more favourable chances and some bounces.

Anyone knowing a bad period = Petrov.

From what I heard:
Plekanec = Petrov
Perezhogin = Petrov
Samsonov = Petrov
Bulis = Petrov

From what I can expect:

Zednik = Petrov
Cwerkawski = Petrov
Yann Danis = Petrov

Dammit people.

hmmmm - if I was to put something on it . . . Pleks kind of reminds me of a shorter version of Jan Bulis . . . . was he a winger though ?

Anyways, ya my 2 cents worth on it - only second year though!

I just think his style doesn't mesh well with Kovalev. He seems to get along well with Sammy, though. The problem is that line needs a crash-banger to make things happen on the ice. I would like to see Carbo experiment by having Sammy, Plek play with a Higgins to see what happens.

Yup. I agree with what you posted...

And, Plekanec and Petrov? (maybe close to similar in height...Petrov is 5'8-5'9...Pleks is approx. 5'9''-5'10"). Okay so there are more similarities (they're both speedsters and usually add lots of hustle).

Still...PLEKS is so good on the PK. Love him there, especially with Higgins.
Pleks and Higgins on PK is as dangerous or more than our PP (at times)!!!!!

I saw Pleks being set up well by Kovalev tonight and Pleks didn't finish, I understand the frustration, but I also see how useful Pleks is...
And, I'm sure HABS management will find that 2nd center within a month or two...
I like Pleks but I love him more on 3rd line (next year when Bonk leaves). Or 4th line now with Lapierre and Lats, now that would be a great 4th line right now (with Begin putting pressure on the 4th line players or even Streit...).
