A few years ago, I would've been furious, but now I just kind of go with what ever our scouts do because they have been so successful. We don't have much depth at center in the NHL, just some guys that can fill in and get the job done, but no one you want long-term. Backes and Berglund are good natural centers, Steen will probably be good enough, and Oshie can play for a few games here and there. If Backes or Berglund get hurt, we could have some trouble.
What's worse is our center prospects are horrible.
Granted our center situation is still a lot better than a lot of other teams though.
