I think if Bjugstad makes the team, he probably starts out at wing. I don't see why we couldn't sign someone like Bozak to a reasonable deal. I think the only exception is if we draft MacKinnon. He'd probably be penciled in as the #1 center.
Sometimes I hate that we agree completely on everything like this Seriously, I think we are gonna look at a guy like Bozak who can slot down a line if Bjugstad develops properly and turns into a servicable #1 center.

Thats not completely true though. They said they would prefer to develop players but the right talent could be in the lineup right away. MacKinnon could be seen as that type of player if the team feels he could withstand the physical side of things immediately.
