WE need a center who's scoringline capable. Both Goc and Legwand are borderliners.
Dulz, I agree that Goc and Legwand and borderliners....

But Goc is a good third line center who's borderline second-line center, while Legwand is a good second line center who's a borderline top line center. That, and the fact that Legwand's better defensively explains the contract difference. Now Legwand is overpaid, but not by a lot.

I agree that Nashville could use a true first line center that consistent puts up between 70 and 80 points.

Unfortunately there are none of those out there beyond Brad Richards (and he won't be available).
