but more importantly is that if we drafted a top 6 center and had that guy and umberger as our top 2 centers of the future and then got crosby, that would be a GREAT problem to have...i hope we'll one day be 'tortured' with deal with that
I think you have a great point, and worst comes to worst we trade the center that we drafted if we do get Crosby. I feel we should draft a winger anyway, since it's much stronger there. You changed my mind about not drafting someone, because you might get someone else. But I hope we get Crosby.
