just look at all the cup winners since the lockout and their Goalies and Centers

2012:

Kopitar,Richards

Quick


2011:

Krejci,Bergeron

Thomas

2010:

Toews

Niemi

2009:

Crosby,Malkin

Fleury

2008:

Datsyuk/Zetterberg(they played together that year so only one but both are Centers)

Osgood

2007:

Getzlaf

Giguere

2006:

Staal

Ward


every team on that list except Boston had an elite Center and Boston had crazy depth and both Krejci and Bergeron playing extremely well

I wouldn't call half of the Goalies on that list elite

the Center position is INCREDIBLY important
