Dubinsky played very well as a center at the Worlds, from what I have read he was one of the best American players there, he could be moving back to center. Anisimov started to come into his own at the end of the season, and stated he felt stronger playing with prust and shelley who do the dirty work and protect him, sounds like wheeler with his size could look good on the right side of Anisimov.
We just signed stepan who could be a 1st or 2nd line center, but at least a 3rd line center in a year or two. We have Grachev, who plays LW, but can also play center. Plus Werek down the line. We still have Drury and Christensen looked pretty good with gaborik.
I am not too worried about trading Bourque, who isn't projected to be more than a 2nd line center at best for Wheeler, a big 2nd line RW we wanted before he signed with the Bruins.
