This a deal that makes a lot of sense. Habs are high on Galychenyuk but they need to open a spot for him to play 2nd line center behind moving out Plekanec would create the spot for Galchenyuk and they could use the steadying help that Hjalmarsson would provide on the back end.
Chicago needs a 2nd line center and Plekanec would be a great fit. the cap hit of the two players is close enough with Plekanec has 4 years and $5m per while Hjalmarsson is $3.5m for another 2 years. Chicago might need to add a prospect or a pick to help balance the deal.
So what are they waiting for. I am giving my blessing to this deal.
