You clearly overrate your players and do not understand the value of a big, top line center. It's alright though, because the Ducks won't be moving Getzlaf. He already has stated he wants to resign with the Ducks and the Ducks would obviously want him back.

But in all seriousness do you believe Ennis or Hodgson are going to be good first line centers? Ennis stands at 5'9". Hodgson is a small 6', and hasn't amounted to anything so far. You have an abundance of small centers, most of whom are not even capable of the second line. Congrats for being "knowledgeable" about your own players. You have no top line center, even in fairytale land. And the only part that was sarcastic about my post was asking who your top line center was (Ott or Gerbe), but really, they are right there for the hunt for the Sabres' best center (even though Ott rarely plays C anymore). Good luck finding a real top line center.
They might never be true top line centers, but they could be a good 1A/1B. Bruins fans know you don't need a top end #1 center to win the cup, the year you won the cup neither Bergeron nor Krejci broke 65 pts.

Since you mention that Ennis and Hodgson will never amount to anything, why would we risk trading our only center prospect with the most upside for a rental who would likely not stay? Makes no sense to me.
