You get Richards, you've got RIchards, Stepan, Anisimov, Drury, Boyle, Christensen down the middle, and only Dubinsky, Avery, Boogaard down the left hand side.
I disagree. I'd say Dubinsky is far closer to being a #1 LW than Stepan or Anisimov are to being #1 Cs.

EDIT: Furthermore, I see Drury (other than taking faceoffs) and Boyle on the wing in an ideal world.

Leaving you with:
Richards
Anisimov
Stepan
one of Christensen/Boyle/Drury

That's a vastly improved center situation.
