It's not that tons of Oil fans want a better 2nd line center it's just that several Oil fans want a bigger second line center. None of our centres really have any size and none of our top 6 forwards have any size, either.

On top of that, Hall-Hopkins-Eberle is a line that nobody wants to see broken up and before the drafting of Yakupov that left Gagner, our second line center, without a sniper. I'm convinced that Gagner could consistently put up 20+ goals on a year to year basis playing on the second line if there was an actual center on his line. We'll find out next season.
