But please, lets not be delusional, thinking he can be our 2nd line centre if he hasnt played it for 6 years (even if hes a "natural" centre, who cares if he hasnt been one for the majority of his career) is wishful thinking. and disregarding "reliable" source's views because you "feel" he is this or that is foolish. He's a skilled, albiet slow 2nd line winger. A good fit for this team, and as somebody put it PERFECTLY, a replacement for Samuelsson. But he isnt without risk.

This is a good signing, but I would still like that 2nd line centre filled.
We have a great 2nd line center already, it's a 1st line center we need. I like how one of the posters on mains called the Panthers the island of misfit toys, and how that makes hard not to root for us.
