There are a number of good UFA centers coming up I agree. I don't think any of them are as good at this stage of their careers as ROR will be or Stastny was until 2011. Disappointing to think about center depth being the backbone of our rebuild and now kind of evaporating you know?

As an aside, Dave Bolland is a UFA in the summer of 2014 and I'd love if we could acquire him next year.
