TheJuxtaposer is absolutely right about Buffalo.

Girgensons isn't even playing center in the AHL yet and there is no guarantee he makes it as a center in the NHL or that his offense develops at the pro level. Monahan would be a perfect fit for us. Besides that, Ennis is probably better suited to wing in the long run, Hecht is long gone after this year and Grigs showed he is still a few years out. Monahan is potentially NHL ready, has the offensive chops for a eventual top 6 center AND has excellent defensive skills. Monahan would be the pick, no question about it.
