I tried to keep the list to guys that seem to be attainable without horribly overpaying....

C Lars Eller - MTL - 23 y.o - 6'2" 209lbs. - 46.7% FO (46.6% in 2012)
C Marcel Goc - FLA - 29 y.o. - 6'1" 205lbs. - 47.7% FO (51.6% n 2012)
C Brian Boyle - NYR - 28 y.o. - 6'7" 244lbs. - 53.4% FO (51.8% in 2012)
C Derick Brassard - CBJ -25 y.o. - 6'1" 202lbs. - 44.6% FO (45.1% in 2012)

Or a little less likely, but still a possibility...

C Kyle Brodziak - MIN - 28 y.o. - 6'2" 210lbs. - 52.6% FO (49.5% in 2012)
C Valtteri Filppula - DET - 28 y.o. - 6'0" 195ibs. - 54.9% FO (51.7% in 2012)

Or do we dole out more $$$ and potentially overpay with assets to try and pry a guy like Martin Hanzal (43.7% FO in 2013, 52.1 in 2012) out of the desert or Mike Fisher (50% FO - $4.5M cap hit) out of NSH - and no Fisher no longer has a NTC... it was limited through this season, but he declined to provide list.

We need help real bad, who would you like to see in Buffalo if not O'Reilly?

Thoughts???
Fisher from Nashville ain't happenin. Not while Carrie Underwood is his wife.
