I hope Gillis gets us a #1 center prospect in the off season. I would love a Ryan Johansen but that'll be tough to pry him out of Columbus and get Loungo to go there..

I don't want a high profile C prospect. Johansen would skew value too much. I'm fine with someone like Shore + 1st. Need the 1st. That way, they can supplement the position by getting a near roster player _and_ draft another high end prospect C in this draft. Getting both goes a long way in replenishing that position within the pipeline. While getting one better one likely doesn't allow that 1st to come along with it.

After all, a guy like Bjugstad was drafted 19th overall.
