I don't object to a Jones-Wolski-Hejduk line. It just can't be a checking line. That's the Avs 2nd line.

If this is all true (and I agree that it is), the Avs need to showcase Wolski during the first half of this season - playing Center - and trade him at the deadline.

Everyone can argue if Wolski is a good or crappy center, but I think we can all agree that he is a MUCH better Center than Wing. And if he's not playing at center 2-3 years from now, we need to deal him while we can still get value in return.
