Boston didn't really have a true number one centre and they won the cup. Seguin might be a number one centre, but he wasn't at the time. The difference is that Boston had great centre depth that year with Krecji, Bergeron, Peverely (who actually played wing for some games) and Kelly. Krecji nor Bergeron are true #1 centres.

You can overcome the lack of a true number one, with QUALITY centre depth. If Galchenyuk pans out the way we expect him to, then a centre depth of Desharnais, Plekanec, Galchenyuk and Eller really isn't bad at all.
