Bjugstad has all the attributes for 2C, but isn't really there yet. Caps lacks a top prospect down the middle and with Johansson more and more looking like a winger, Bjugstad might be exactly what they need. Florida does have Weiss and Huberdeau to fill the centerpositions and might benefit from strengthening other positions.
Petrovic is a mean defensive D-man, also something lacking (sans Rissling) in the Caps system.

Fair for both sides?
Kulikov and Brian Campbell are pretty decent at moving the puck...while Gudbranson is green around the ears as well...
