I don't think there's any reason to be concerned.
If a first line center was what was keeping this team from winning a Stanley Cup, then yes I'd say your fears would be warranted.
This team trading Dubi/Prospects/Picks for a first line center (one who is a myth, and doesn't exist, outside of Richards who doesn't make sense with his impending UFA) does nothing but possibly make this team a second round exit at best.
We need to keep Dubi/the kids/picks/prospects and when it's time for this team to take the next step then we acquire that first line center (most likely, and preferably through free agency).
Come on man. I never said this. Nor do I think this. I may not be the sharpest knife in the chandelier but I'm not ignorant.
