Yeah, and we lost. Way to use an example to support my point. Unless your plan this season is to see the team get to the finals and lose again, then sure, your example works.
And a 3rd line centre can improve offense. Look at Goc's stats and games played, he'd bring some secondary scoring. Not only that, but if we can get a centre that is also a decent shutdown/faceoff guy, it takes away harder competition off our top 6 and gives them a better chance to score, like a trickle down effect. Not to mention top 6 forwards are much harder to acquire, and you need to give up more assets, which we don't have much of. Third line centre and a RH PMD are easier spots to fill. But I would agree that if a great top 6 forward becomes available, Gillis pursues him.
