And Steve Ott and Ville Leino are also not natural centers, and won't be even if Ruff plays them there. We absolutely need a stopgap solution down the middle.
I concur. Just because we traded Gaustad does not mean we are set at center. But when you can get a 1st rd pick for a player like that, you do it, especially when you consider that we parlayed that 1st rd pick into one of the future leaders of this team (Girgs). I'd look at just about anyone mentioned on here so far: Manny, Bozak, Cullen, Stoll, Laich, etc...
