Not really.

Isles current top six is 5'11- 6'1. Not much size or grit.


Staples gave a preseason chat and says the isles love 6'3 Brock Nelson. With centers Nelson and Strome expected to push for spots in next season's training camp, I can't see the isles adding a smallish center, who needs top 6 icetime.
