I agree.. I hate to go with the general concensus but Smyth and Hemsky definitely do need a centerman. Horcoff just isn't the guy as can be seen from the last few games. While people are saying that offense isn't our problem and that we should probably be looking for a defenceman rather than a centerman, I think that much of our defensive problems are coming from that very center position.. Stefan hasn't done much in his career but he definitely has proven to be a capable defensive player. He's definitely a risky acquisition and I've heard a lot of negative comments about him but much the same was said about Bonk in Ottawa and look at him now..
