We need one center right now. Someone to play on whatever line in the top 2 that Legwand isn't on. Johnson will be our 3rd line center and 4th line center isn't worth worrying about because it sees so little ice time. That role can be filled by a myriad of players already on the payroll. No sense bringing in someone that forces Johnson to play a 4th line role at his salary.
i agree smokey. i was mainly just setting up the moderator crack.

I'd be completely fine with seeing what Smithson could do b/n hordichuk and tootoo. My smithson viewing has been minimal, but from what I've read it sounds like he gets under people's skin which would make him perfect b/n hordichuk and tootoo. How is he on faceoffs?
