Including PITT whose 2 centers are injured (but I included them anyway because it's a given), only 7 teams have two centers with 50 points or more. In fact, Chicago did not have that last year yet they won the Cup. While it must be great to have it is not a pre-requiste for winning. Many things factor into that.
