I am not convince we need to spend a whole lot of money to acquire a TOP 2 center. Sure we would need some help there but look at buffalo, who are there top 3 centers (Briere, Connelly, Drury):

Briere: 5'10, 178lb
Connely: 6'1, 182lb
Drury: 5'10, 180lbs

These guys are'nt exactly big guys but they are fast and mostly that have good wingers to work with. We are building a team in that mold guys. A team that is all about speed. What we need is something that would complement us very well. I also think we are one or two forawards away from being an excellent team and one thing that is for sure and surely undenialbe is that we are going in the right direction.

I also do not think that Ribs is the solution for the second line but you never know what can pop up next year. Guys like Chipchura and Lapierre could step it up and fore Plekanek to move to the second line and Force Ribs to be traded...

Would we be in such a bad position next year with the follwoing team...
Higgins, Koivu, Ryder
Perezhogin, Plekanek, Kovalev
Begin, Lapierre, Kostsitsyn
Murray, Chipchura, UFA (a guy like Jamal Mayers)
