I'm just wondering because Spezza isn't getting younger, and while Turris has looked nice he doesn't seem to be on the same level as a Spezza type talent.

Both Lindholm and Monahan, in my opinion, project to be that solid #1 center type that we can rely on. Plus they're both special players in their own way (biased towards Monahan, but mostly because I've seen a lot more of him and he plays for Ottawa).
All depends really. I agree with you, I think Lindholm and Monohan are great talents, both easily with top line potential. It seems to me that Ottawa's scouts always seem to have a diamond in the rough pick, and have a guy ranked in there top 10-15 that are not universally thought to go that high. I wouldn't be surprised if we have someone like that ahead of some of the guys in the top 10, and will sit on our pick to grab them.
