Could try going after a guy like Mark Letesu or Derrick Brassard. Anything better than Horc.
If Hanzal was acquired for lets say Gagner+, my guess is that a few weeks later, folks may feel a little offense from that 2C position (than Hanzal's ~35 points average provides) would be more desirable, especially when considering he'd be centering dynamic wingers like Yakupov, Hall or Eberle.

With Horcoff, IMO, likely to be bought out this summer, the best course of action may be to leave Gagner in place and find a replacement 3C for Horcoff by dangling Hemsky in the trade market this TDL.

Perhaps Derrick Brassard is that target -- a relatively cheap 3C acquisition with 2C upside.

And then fill the hole left by Hemsky's departure by internal promotion (young wingers Hartikanen or Paajarvi) or UFA market (top six wingers are typically more available than top six centers).
