The sens need help up front however they can get it though.
Filp is still a developing prospect in many ways.

Currently
He is a Great (not elite) checking center.
He is a Great (not elite) Playmaking center
With Great speed
Already a second line center

Future (possible)
He has a decent wrist shot with confidence he may gain some finishing skills and develop ala Pavel Datsyuk. (fairly likely)
His playmaking or checking either could become elite.

Hes become a much stronger player this year people just didnt realize it till the playoffs because we used him as a checker. Im not sure he will ever be an elite first line center but he could be a semi passive first line center who is defensively responsible or a very very strong 2nd line guy.
