Brooks Laich is not a true center. His face off skills are average and he isn't what Beagle is defensively or physically.

Laich is best suited on the 2nd line as a winger who can take defensive zone draws in lieu of Ribeiro who struggles in that category. While Laich is an average faceoff guy he crushes Ribeiro who is subpar.

MP should be the 4th line center. He stepped in quite admirably in the absence of Backstrom and does provide some good energy and forecheck.
