This is my issue with the discontent in our fanbase around the lack of top forwards, namely centers. Probably 1/3 of the teams in the league are without a "legitimate" #1 center and the teams that do have one are either trying to throw the barn at them to resign (e.g. ANA) or would never trade them outside of a massive overpayment. You want a Kesler / Backstrom / Getzlaf type player? Then you're going to have to part with a lot of players you like. Trading for Vanek would cost us more than Wilson + Josi + 1st; no one here is on board with that really.

The Preds are a team that really needs a normal training camp and preseason; we had a rocky start without one, but I'd like to see how things pan out as time goes on without any moves. We'll see if these past three W's indicate that things are beginning to click or if it was just an anomaly. STL game was great, but the LA and SJ games were about as narrow a victory as you can get.
