The center holds more value.

Go through the Stanley Cup Champs the past 20 years and see how those teams were built.

Teams built through the wings are doomed to fail.

Don't get me wrong, the high scoring winger certainly is very nice to have but the team without strength down the middle ain't going nowhere.

I guess it depends what your end game is. If you're talking about regular season success, then whatever. But if you want to win the cup, I would take 3 - two-way 55-60 point centers with a bunch of average wingers over 3 - 40-40 wingers with a bunch of average centers any day of the week.
