Put Jackman with Petro and DZ with Polak. Or did they already try Jackman with Petro and it was a disaster?
DZ and Polak would not be a good enough 2nd pairing IMO. Polak is not as good as Jackman and DZ is not as good as Shattenkirk.

Steen is a center this year for us.

McDonald is not a center for our system and his injuries have forced him to wing full time.

Oshie does not have the speed to play center full time and is perfect with Backes on the wing. He is not moving off that line full time.

Schwartz has been a winger in college, WJC, and in the NHL.

Trading Steen would make Sobotka or eventually Arnott our 3rd line center.

Regardless we can't afford Gaborik, so it's a straight no go.
