Canadiens' Plekanec believes the youth will takeover

The Montreal Canadiens stayed relatively quiet this offseason. Their two signings? Forward Alexander Semin and defenseman Mark Barberio. Not exactly marquee signings a team pushing ever so close to the Stanley Cup would expect. But why? Why wouldn't a team want to sign more guys to put them over the edge? Tomas Plekanec might know the answer. It all lies within Montreal's youth....

Tomas Plekanec believes the Canadiens will have a youth movement

The Montreal Canadiens sat mostly idle this summer, outside of acquiring Alexander Semin and Zack Kassian. Neither deal shook the NHL and the Canadiens opted to mostly stand pat, believing that their young skaters will provide plenty of competition in training camp. Tomas Plekanec believes the Canadiens have a wealth of young talent and that it might rise to the surface in 2015-16...

Tomas Plekanec Responds To Brad Marchand’s Dig With One Of His Own

Montreal Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec is taking Brad Marchand’s comments in stride. On Wednesday, the Boston Bruins agitator revealed at a charity dinner that out of everyone in the league, it is Plekanec who irritates him the most.

VIDEO: Tomas Plekanec Embellishment Penalty Leads To Rangers Goal

(Video) Tomas Plekanec embellishment, Brian Boyle two minutes

This is a weak penalty in my opinion. Montreal Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec should have gotten a Emmy for his award winning performance. No really, he should have gotten a two-minute minor for embellishment. Now lets be clear, New York Rangers forward Brian Boyle shouldn't be hitting Plekanec up high with his stick, but that's a brutal call by the officials. Plekanec would make...
