We're not at Pittsburgh's level in terms of center depth, but few are.

MoJo is a weird player to project. A tip top skater, he competes hard, shows good hockey sense, a hard shot, sometimes good passing, good positioning. But for the life of me I don't know what all that adds up to. I can't think of a past NHL player like him. Is he skilled enough to be the rock at 2C. Not this year IMO. Maybe one day. Maybe not. But he doesn't seem right at 3C either. Maybe as he gets older he'll be the perfect 3C. That's my best guess.
