We have a 3rd line center. His name is Brian Boyle. Former King actually, and hes a great 3rd liner. He was tearing it up in the playoffs before Chris Neil hit him high and concussed him. He made Anisimov expendable. Kreider has already replaced Dubinsky in the top 6 LW role. We didnt lose anything really in that trade. And I liked Anisimov, but hes replaceable.
And theres NO 3rd line center, not even Stoll, thats more valuable than Rick Nash. Thats just typical HF centerism at work.
