3.25 mill feels like a lot, even on a one year deal. Not that we don’t have cap space

The cap hit is $2.25M.  Considering everyone signs for $1.75M these days, its a fair deal.

Pathetic, Classic MB

 

doesn't improve the team, wastes 2 mill on a 4th line center

I mean... who cares, the season will be a bust. Might as well spend it on a lifelong Hab we traded for a 2nd rounder who is two days away from his 1000th game.

We should have brought him back. I wonder if Bergevin got raked by Molson after he didn't re-sign him and that's why Plekanec is getting this deal.

I'm happy to have him back. This doesn't hurt us in any way and it may not help us much either but I don't think there is anything happening this year that will help us.

Welcome back Plekanec.  Nice to see him back.  I don't have an issue with this one.  1 year deal with a fair cap hit.  If the Habs suck again he can once again be moved more pick(s) and or prospect(s).  If the Habs are decent, he gives them good depth down the middle and he's a solid shut down center.

Me neither of it’s in a 4th line role.

Pleks is the team's second best C! After Philip Danault

I understand people saying we should not resign Plekanec but I’d like the Habs to do so. The problem I see is having Danault and Plekanec on the same team. It pretty much ensures at least one of them would be playing higher in the lineup than they should be.

 

and also

Tavares

Stastny

Bozak

J. Thornton

Plekanec

 

My prediction is that at least one of those centers ends up on our team next year. Take your pick of which ^_^

A deal we can easily move at the deadline for another solid package.

We did use Toronto's 2nd round pick to get him, so we'll see what the next package brings.

Yea that’s exactly what I mean, and I take that as a return every time. Olofsson is a solid prospect

It doesn't appear as if Plekanec received a no-trade clause in this contract either which increases the potential of him being a deadline rental once again.

A solid signing for sure. What surprises me, personally, is how little affection or sentimental attachment I feel for the guy, despite having respected him (and defended him against critics) for years. Am I unusual in this - ? Are most people delighted to have ol' Pleky back, or basically just regarding it as a hockey move?

Might it be because you've been expecting it to happen all along?  It's not like he was gone for several years and now is coming back to where it all began.  Technically, he was playing elsewhere for what, two months?  No element of surprise equals less (or no) emotion towards the signing.
