I'm trying to figure out why the heavy emphasis on centers. There's a glaring hole in the system for wingers, especially R/W. Does the apparent need for centers reflect on a player like Anisimov? Perhaps, they have doubts about him ever improving on face-offs? Are they toying with the idea down the road of moving Stepan to the wing?
Drafting isn't about what's on the team now. It's about what's in the system. There's not a lot of center depth in the system right now. Our best forward prospects are Kreider, Thomas, Hagelin, and Fasth. All wings. Prior to the draft, Lindberg and Bourque (who I'm not too high on) were the only centers in our prospect pool of any note.
