Because Ruff's a bad coach so I don't care what he thinks, and at the moment, the team has three sub-par defensive centers (although Hodgson's pedigree is good so at least he has upside), and one average one. Rather than replace three to four lines worth of centers, so that any of our top nine pivots can face top competition a-la the Kings, it makes sense to get one or two very good defensive centers through (almost) any means and give them the brunt of the matchups.
