A top five pick is not a guaranteed quality 2C, much less by 2014. I don't care how "stacked" the draft is. Getting a Ryan Johansen or Kyle Turris isn't going to solve our 2C woes. Hell, even a Ryan Strome or Jonathan Huberdeau won't put us in cup contention by 2014 or 2015. We can't count on the center making an immediate impact like Tavares or Stamkos. Nor should we handcuff ourselves into taking a center rather than the BPA.

It took forever to get a 2C. Not only do we finally have one, we have one that's excelling in the role. Lock up Ribeiro.
