He will be playing center here in New York, mark my words.
As soon as I read that we signed him, I immediately thought the same thing.

Prospal has great vision and would probably serve this team best in a centering role as his playmaking skills are far superior to that of Dubinsky.

I can still see Dubi as a center with Drury moving to wing. If there's a player that can help mentor Dubinsky as a center it's going to be Drury in that they are both somewhat limited in their offensive talents, Chris can show Brandon the in's and out of keeping his feet moving and being in the right place at the right time.

Higgins - Prospal - Gaborik
Drury - Dubinsky - Kotalik
Avery - Anisimov - Callahan
Brash - Boyle - Lisin

I like the Prospal signing as it adds some actual offensive talent to this other wise talentless team.
