If your basing it line-wise then you'll have a problem with it, but our "order of centers" does not matter. It's how the team meshes as that set of players. Just because Brandon Dubinsky is playing with Jaromir Jagr does not make him a #1 Center because he doesn't have the playing ability or TOI to call himself that. That's Gomez, Drury that take up the top two TOI to call themselves the top two centers.

It's all about TOI, and Brandon Dubinsky won't see above 20 minutes a night this year while Gomer and Dru will see that quite often.
Hmm... I never really thought about it that way before. Consider my opinion changed. Jagr stays
