If there actually was an original comment to this effect, I wonder if it is just a smoke screen so potential trading partners think he is isn't desperate to acquire another center.
They had an overload of centers that included Carter, Richards, Brierre, Giroux. After Carter/richards left, they still had Brierre and Giroux as the top 2 centers, so there was no spcae for JVR.
