Have all taken more faceoffs then Steckel this season (with more success at that!)

Also factor in that we have Tim Connolly and Joe Colborne in the AHL, who could fill in as one of the four centers in case of injury.

Given his UFA status this offseason I think we unload him before the deadline for a late pick to a team in need of a faceoff specialist.
I would also argue we have a number of players on the Marlies who could, argueably, fill Steckel's role and do a better job if needed. Colborne, Deschamps, Zigomanis, Ryan.
