Having depth and skill at center has been proven to be extremely valuable and vital for any team going for success.
Hmm...You seem to have very different view to Salomäki's game than most of the people who see him play regulary. Salomäki plays best as a winger, period. Even in last year WJC Salomäki got little wasted because Helminen used him as a center. Now there's Barkov, Teräväinen and Granlund to play first to third center. Use Salomäki on the wing where is able to use his strenghts best and bring his unique talent to this team.
