Top end C is right, but Scheifele and Burmistrov haven't proven they aren't going to become that.

Currently our C's are good enough for the role, but Antropov and Jokinen won't be the future. IMO neither will Little as his best role is at RW.

Our need for LHD is a little over exaggerated. Enstrom is already a top pairing LHD and Hainsey does a good enough job when paired with Bogo. We also have Trouba on the way and I don't think it would absolutely kill us to pair up two righties.

Really all we need is one #4 LHD (which Hainsey is good for right now) and those aren't impossible to come by. We don't need to go balls to the walls and acquire the next Dougie Hamilton (who is a rightie anyway) to pair with Bogo.

So in conclusion we need a #4 LHD and two top 6 centers for the future (Burmistrov & Scheifele may or may not become those). So I'd say if we're hitting an area of need it's centermen. So I'd still take Scheifele > Hamilton at this point.
