2nd Line Center "again"

So.. it looks pretty much that Lombardi's shopping tour ended.

We still have a big hole on the 2nd line Center position if not Stoll or Handzus really step up.

But wanna listen to you guys... who is your guy to center the 2nd line and most important WHY ????????

I give it a shot... and say it's Teddy Purcell.
Lombardi gave him a 1 year contract and the reason for that is he has to proofe something. I think they will give him top 6 minutes from the season beginning and see what's happening.
But i don't see him stealing a winger spot and he is a pure playmaker with great hockey sense and passing skills.

that's why i think it looks like

Smyth - Kopitar - Brown
Frolov - Purcell - Williams

so he has 2 guys to mentor him and could really help to take his skills to the next level.

Just 2 problems...... the Salary from Stoll and Handzus on line 3 and 4 but you let the most skilled guy play not the most payed one
