The thing with centres is our best forward prospects are all Cs, not high end ones but Leblanc, Bournival and Eller are all two way Cs with second line potential. The only winger prospect we have is Gallagher, and I'd be very surprised if Gionta and Cammalleri finish their contracts in Montreal.

We could definitely use a big scoring C but good luck trading for one of those. We don't have the assets to trade for a Getzlaf or Mike Richards without giving up everything.

I'd much rather roll with Plekanec, Desharnais and Eller and try to flip Cammalleri for a guy with a better contract who actually contributes during the regular season than trade Pleks + AK + a ton of prospects for a center just because he's a 6'3" Canadian.
