If not, then its either Horcoff, then Belanger. Unfortunately, those two are made for the 3rd and 4th lines.
So unless its an equal or greater 2nd center than Sam, we cannot trade him.
A media type asked coach Kruger about first line.

he asked which first line:

Our tough Comp 1st line. (Smyth-Horcoff-Hartikainen)
Our Defensive Draw 1st line (Smyth-Horc-Gagner); (Hall-Belanger-Eberle)
Our offensive zone 1st line (Hall-RNH-Eberle)
PP 1st line (Hall-Horc-RNH-Eberle-Schultz)
Pk 1st line (Smyth-Horcoff)
Shootout 1st line. (Gagner-Hemsky-Eberle)

Our media will not be so foolish/childish
with the TOR media type questions.
