Avs are not going to outgun the top teams 1st lines, so we need to be better than most on 2-4, which is what I felt their plan has been for a few years now. But this is the kind of guy you have to overpay a little bit to keep your edge in depth, especially when injuries take out one of our top 3 centers, Jay is a great option on the 3rd.
