We have a definite #1 Center that isn't injury prone so it's unlikely Lindros would ever need to step in there, Nieuwendyk for reasons of chemistry with Antropov/Ponikarovsky, the natural desire to get him on ass many faceoffs as possible and Quinn's tendency to roll his lines would solidify him as our #2 Center.
Which would leave Lindros in the role of our 3rd line Center... he would get decent ice-time, but he'd be no more expected to carry the team then would be his likely winger on the 3rd line Owen Nolan.
Logic will never kill this story.
