In Montreal the depth I want to see at centre going forward is:

Grigorenko/Galchenyuk
Plekanec/Desharnais
Eller
Leblanc
White

* So trade either Plekanec or Desharnais this summer
So by your definition Giroux Crosby Datsyuk Krejci Tavares Stamkos are too small to be #1 centers.

So there are 5-6 "true #1 centers" and 30 teams...that doesn't compute.

I still don't get this obsession with #1 centers having to be 6'2". Skating vision and hockey sense would be well ahead of size on my chart.
