Tomas Plekanec's name has come up as a potential trade chip for Montreal.
It will be a question that GM Marc Bergevin may have to answer, but it may just net the team additional cap space and some draft choices. Plekanec signed a two-year extension with the Canadiens in October, but his new contract doesn't have any no-trade clauses. Plekanec does have a modified NTC in 2015-16, though. He has nine goals and 34 points in 50 contests this year. Jan 28 - 8:49 AM

Tomas Plekanec said his agent, Rick Curran, has not had any discussions with the Montreal Canadiens about a contract extension.

"I'm not going to ask them if they want me," Plekanec said jokingly. "If they want me, they would call, I guess." Depending on what the team does with Alex Galchenyuk at center this season, it could make Plekanec expendable even though he earned 26 goals and 60 points last season. He can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2015-16 campaign.
