    Default Plekanec wants to go back to Montreal.

    Thanks but no thanks Toronto. Does Montreal take him back?

    "Obviously as I said before my priority is to play for the Montreal Canadiens, but you know, what's going to happen? I don't know. I don't know what Marc [Bergevin] has planned, I don't know what Claude Julien has planned so everything is open I guess from now on until July 1st. Like I said, my heart is in Montreal, my family is in Montreal, so that's my priority?"

    Where ever he ends up, it will be on a bargain contract for the team signing him.


    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, JaBenn, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Turris, Letang, Kucherov, Byfuglien, Burns, Zuccarello, Hoffman, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Athanasiou, Bjorkstrand, Point, KHayes, Konecny, Vrana, NSchmaltz

    More so with the Canadiens now that he showed his hand.

    Sabotage!!!
    With the exception of a few playoff games, this guy was pretty stinky in a Leafs uniform overall. Although, I must admit, I blame Babcock as much as anyone.
    I wonder if (albeit unintentionally, of course, because he is a pro) it's just impossible to go all out for team like the Leafs when they've been your enemy your whole career.

    My guess is he won't be back. He'll be a scapegoat (maybe rightfully so, who knows) for the team's "attitude problem"

    I am guessing it will be a Montreal or overseas option.

    I don't see him going overseas. He should have NHL options at the right price.

    I've always been a big fan. Unfortunately, if he comes back it will likely mean Montreal still has not found a top 6 centre to push down Danault and JDLR to the 3rd and 4th C spots.

    That said, if the teams does end up using the 3rd overall pick to draft Zadina, having Plekanec around as a big brother / mentor might be a fine idea.

    Also it was mentioned in the media at the time of the trade that the two sides had discussed parameters for his eventual return.

    Pleks is sitting at 999 career regular season games, all but 19with the Habs. They bring him back on a bargain deal and he now becomes worth his salary. It would be too weird to see him hit 1000 games in his 1st game with a 3rd team.
    Yesterday's weirdness is tomorrow's reason why. - H.S.T.
