I think that there's a few reasons why people aren't as worried about LW as they are about C:

1) Center is the more important position. Centers have more responsibilities and impact the game more.

2) As it stands right now, Dubinsky is a borderline first line player. He might not be a first liner on all teams, but right now he's far closer to that mark than Stepan or Anisimov.

3) By a similar token, Kreider is seen as having more potential than our young centers. This means that we have the safe bet in Dubi and the possible high reward (but no guarantee) in a prospect. Also, our prosepect pool is weak at center.

4) Historically, LW has been a weak position.
