Sure, he can fail. Then Blues will need to trade for that playmaking center. They have a lot of valuable pieces.
If the Blues wanted a playmaking center don't you think they would have put Andy McDonald there years ago instead of moving him to the wing almost immediately? If Lehtera comes over(and plays center) he is going to need to be a north south player that can shoulder some defensive load. His playmaking abilities certainly won't hurt if he wins a puck battle and sees a winger/d-man in some open ice but it's not a requirement for how the Blues employ their centers.
