Let's hope the habs do a better job of developing players and then hang on to them.

Mikhail Grabovski - 2004

That is 6 centers in the past 23 years and the only one of that group that had any size at all was Conroy. Of course there are still a couple that have a chance to make an impact but none look particularly dominating.

Our inability to find quality centers in the draft coincides with our inability to ice a highly competitive team on a consistent basis. Is that a coincidence or is it a problem.



PS - I probably missed a couple so please feel free to add names to the list.
