Thats another issue I'm having with this discussion. Posters just keep moving the benchmark of what this mythical #1 is suposed to be. Its starts at Crosby, Malkin, and now we are down to Jeff Carter and Mik Richards. While good players they are hardly on the same level as the players that started the debate. I would also argue we have guys at or that can potentially be at their level already on our roster (Carter and Richards level that is)
Who is saying trade for Malkin?

The OP only referenced the nebulous "#1 center".

The first player actually mentioned was Sabretip suggesting "For me, it is still a priority and involves replacing Roy with at least an equally-proficient veteran center (i.e. Stastny)."

I think a lot of people would think that Richards or Carter would be filling that "#1 Center" role.

If LA blows things up, Kopitar could potentially be in play. Who wouldn't consider Kopitar a "#1 Center"?
