Jarret Stoll is a gritty,good all round player. He's defensively sound but more importantly he'll win key faceoffs. However he isn't the long-term answer. That position will eventually fall to Brayden Schenn.When Schenn breaks in(2010-11) it will be as a third liner. After some time,perhaps a year he'll assume and take over the second Line centre position for the next 10-15 years and he'll push Kopitar...Stoll has skills but is probably best suited for the third line(until a youngster can fill the slot) maybe Andrei Loktionov...
