Apparently you don't think we need centres who can win faceoffs or forwards who can penalty kill to be competitive in the league.

Of course Barkov can not replace them all but Horcoff. Horcoff is done he will never become even average third liner. Centerman needs to do also something else than win face offs.

It would be also great to have RNH, Gagner and Barkov as top 3 center men. After a couple of years this band can really have shot to SC.

Of course another chance is UFA signing. But free agency is always expensive route.
Finally trading for third line center is possible but it will cost bullets from draft table or prospect pool
