I agree that it lacks depth at center, potentially. We'd have awesome depth on the wings.

It's not ideal, but we simply have too many young centers, and the free agent market is poor for centers. Tallon isn't going to splurge for a big time center on a long term deal. Our top pick this summer is probably going to be a center. 4 of the top 6 prospects in the draft are listed as centers. MacKinnon though is a center who many think will convert to wing in the NHL. He already plays some wing.

I think that team can definitely make the playoffs if Markstrom keeps playing the way he's been playing. A solid 4 lines, average to solid defense, and great goaltending.
