Christensen clicks with Gaborik, so I couldn't give two ***** what "liner" he happens to be.
Sorta like how you didn't give two ***** about Holik playing on the 1st line right? Or Malahkov be our number 1 d-men? Or Jokinen being used in the shootout?

Yeah, that's how your team becomes mediocre. If you like that, then so be it.

Erik Christensen is going to produce way below 1st line standards and people are going to start to cry as to why we dont have a capable centermen like other teams.

The fact that you are ok w/ a mediocre player in Chrtistensen as our number 1 center is pretty damn sad.

Dubinsky on a team with good balance and depth is ideally a 3rd line cenetermen, however can play on the 2nd line. He isn't a 1st line guy like he's been used as. Other teams have better talented players as their 1st line center than a Christensen or Dubinsky in which you seem to think are amazing options.
