As for our lack of depth at center: Sedin, Kesler, Lappierre, Malhotra and Schroeder/Ebbett may not be top of the league but it's a darn bit better than the Leafs. Anyways I'm through with you.
Ok... let me type this slowly for you.

Tyler Bozak and Tim Connolly would both be the #2 centre in Vancouver until Kesler returns, at which point they would become the #3. So either, they're capable of being middle-of-the-lineup centres on a competing team, or Vancouver isn't competing.

As for your depth at centre... it looks like ####. You've got one of the top centres in the league, a high quality 2nd line centre who's injured, and bottom of the lineup role players (a faceoff specialist and agitator).

Better than the Leafs as a group? probably.
Better than the Leafs in the top half? without a doubt.
Better than the Leafs in the bottom half? not a chance.

Based on what? Is another team prepared to offer a deal that is close to that value? are the Canucks prepared to buy out Luongo? Are they prepared to take expectedly less value while accumulating more future cap liability by trading him later?
