    Bobby Macs take:

    Bob McKenzie

    Quick take on MTL-TOR trade: Nice return for MTL on a rental depth C and good pick up by TOR because Plekanec is more than a fourth-line centre who can do many things that might please the head coach. Plekanec can PK, play up and down the lineup.

    The second-round pick is a solid rental return but the key piece may be 22-year-old Rinat Valiev, who is knocking on the door to be an NHL regular on defence. A likely third-pairing, reliable two-way defenceman, Valiev was jammed up in TOR with Dermott, Carrick, Borgman, Polak...

    It remains to be seen if Kerby Rychel, now 23 and on his third NHL organization, can break through to be an NHL regular but he can play a gritty, energy fourth-line game and at worst is a bubble guy/call-up option. Had no real future in TOR

    You realize, Pleks had no formal say in the trade.... Bergevin could have told him he was going to Winnipeg 5 mins before he made it public. Maybe Bergevin was nice for a self serving reason, maybe not.

    That is Engels' view and it makes sense.

    I realize yes. I'd have taken the first. This does appear to be a favor to plekanec and one that might expect reciprocation in the summer. Terrible.

    How bad is Winnipeg that you don't want it to be your home base for a couple of months? You're travelling for a big chunk of that time.

    There could be no other reason for it.

    Engels said the Winnipeg offer was similar, hopefully that's the case. I would like to believe if the Winnipeg offer was obviously superior , MB would have said too bad to Pleks. It's only ~3 months to suck it up in the Peg? Come on...ridiculous.

    They better not offer him more than a couple of million if that is the plan.

    On another note, how many natural centers of worth do the Habs have now? Danault?
