If I'm trying to win a Stanley Cup, a third line center is quite possibly more valuable than any winger. Just ask SCF teams NJ and LA, the two teams that are 4 centers deep and roll 4 lines that can check or play. And how many key moments did Jarrett Stoll play in that run...we had him but were missing a talented winger in Simon Gagne but still dominated.
