I disagree. Gally is projected to become good enough to be our best offensive player. That he plays center or winger doesn't have that much importance for a talent like that.

The Bruins proved you can win with a good but not exceptionnal center line. And Gally could become better than any offensive player they had during their run.

But then, for the right deal and/or if one of our center start sucking and must be traded, I'm all for bringing back Gally at center. It's just not a priority for me, compared to the priority of adding a top offensive talent to our forward group.
