I don't consider it a priority either, but if we do pick up a center I would probably feel fortunate. A top notch center prospect could really help keep our prospect pool rounded out. Not that it really needs to be, but I don't think it can hurt to have high quality prospects in every position. I'd always hope Anaheim would go with the BPA though. I think that's why we drafted Gibson, and Lindholm, and Fowler, and so on... and I think it will continue to pay off because the end result is a high quality player, and you can never have too many of those.
