You can either get accustomed to seeing MPS and Hartikainen playing in those spots or seeing good ol' Edmonton boy Ryan Smyth movin back up.

To me it makes zero sense to move Hall to center at this point.
Gagner will do for now. Once they take care of defence, lest Gagner breaks out this year, they should trade for a bigger, more defensively capable veteran centerman to slot behind RNH (Fisher, Legwand, Plekanec, Jokinen, Vermette, Bolland, Laich etc). Some of these guys might not be available, while others will cost a good prospect+ pick, but it should be done, IMHO.
