For a guy who has spent his entire pro career in Florida, winning may be enough of an enticement to resign in Vancouver.

The depth at centre is also not a given. Henrik is 3 years older than Weiss and Kesler, while a year younger has way more miles on his body. Kesler seems to finish every season banged up in one fashion or another. That doesn't bode well for longevity.

There is also the potential to move one player or another to the wing.

But I don't think Mike Gillis has to rush into any deal. With a shortened training camp, no preseason, a compressed schedule and every game being meaningful, we are one pulled groin away from either needing Luongo or getting a motivated deal.
