Laviolette likes to roll three balanced scoring lines that all have a nice mixture of size, toughness, skill, and defensive prowess. Laviolette uses different types of matchups for different teams and has never used one line or center as the shutdown center/line. Both Giroux and Schenn are excellent defensively, so is Couturier who should be a Flyer by the fall of 2012. I don't see a need to go out and sign or trade for a "shut down center." Of course, I would love an upgrade to Blair Betts who in my opinion has nothing left in the tank due to too many shoulder injuries, and adding a John Madden or Michal Handzus (probably too expensive) to center the fourth line would be great.
