I can't say I agree with that...I think he's much more of a winger than a center.

I still think that Jokinen's passing acumen is needed with Staal12 and Semin. I think that Ruutu is best serves as a wrecking ball for Staal11's line, and Skinner is the guy who capitalizes on the fruits of of the other two. I'm willing to give Welsh a 10-game look at 3C, and I think it makes sense to put Tlusty and LaRose with him for defensive help along with a little bit of opportunistic offense.
