It doesn't.

As I mentioned, unless we're talking a team like Pittsburgh or Los Angeles or Colorado, a team's #2 or #3 centre does not satisfy any of Toronto's needs. We have 6 natural centres and a young winger we're trying to convert. 4 of those can honestly call themselves #2/3 centres. We don't need or want any more, especially if they cost us size up front or one of our best defensive defencemen.

That's like us offering Franson for Datsyuk. Red Wings need defencemen right? Toronto need's a centre, perfect!
