We still have Lang and Draper for 2-3 years for the prospects to get ready. We don't need 3 centers (Lang, Datsyuk, Zetterberg) capable of the top line if we don't have the proper wingers to go with them.
Not to knock on your ideas but I would allow Draper to remain as the 3rd line center. Not saying he won't be a good 2nd liner but he is a two-way defensive center with limited offense (even with his surprising goal production this year). He is an superb 3rd liner, why change that?
