I'm enthusiastic about the long-term landscape of our center situation after some of the moves since February. But I'm very concerned as of right now about our center situation this season.
He absolutely played against top lines. Very frequently. My point is that he was never sent out to match a top line in a defensive role. That was Gaustad, if anyone. And we saw opponents send out their top D-able forward line against FES by the end of the year, fwiw (meaning, he was viewed as our top center at a point)
