While Boston's would be far better (Thorton, Bergeron and Krejci of the top of my head). Edmonton has pretty much nothing between Doug Weight and the yet to be proven Gagner/RNH and Calgary has nothing while Colorado has gotten their hands on a boat load.

My impression at this point is that they've drafted and developed a very respectable number of top-six centers in this time frame but haven't gotten their hands on anyone better than a good 1a (say top 15-30 in the NHL). Which to be fair is a very rare thing to get a top 15 centerman outside of the very top of the draft.
Good points... I will take a look.
