Speaking for my team, I don't think Watson is an issue on the top line because of who he's playing with. It's all about context. If I had an average top line centre I would have obviously looked for more offense from that position.

And that's the danger of using strict position-v-position ratings like I've seen in a few series. The team with the stronger players at any one position doesn't necessarily have the stronger lines overall.

I could have taken a Goulet or Schriner with my 5th pick, but I thought it was diminishing returns to take another shooter there compared to the value of having Georges Boucher as my #3 defenseman (particularly for the style I wanted to play).
