Is that ideal? No, but we need to make it work. Good teams overcome adversity, right now we are getting ****ed by it.
I wonder if we could swing a deal for andrew cogliano. That poor guy needs to get out of Edmonton...
I don't think you can argue with the stats. Our production is good for 6th in the league with three lines going and drops to dead last when we only have two centers with offensive skill in the lineup.
Wilson has been tried at center and went into a total funk due to the added defensive pressures. He has gotten on the scoresheet the last two games and has begun to earn more ice time playing on the wing again. I'd hate to switch his position again right now. Let the kid develop at his own pace.
Legwand is not practicing today. The Predators should seriously consider recalling Jamie Lundmark from Milwaukee to fill that third line center role and scratch Kostitsyn for a game or two (or whoever needs the night off from the flu).
The lineup will be much more effective with O'Reilly, Goc, and Lundmark as our top 3 centers than having to slot one of Smithson or Spaling in there...
