We have zero points from centers since the trade. Koivu, Granlund, Brodziak, and Konopka all goose eggs. Depth at center was a much larger concern than scoring from the right wing. Setoguchi needs a good center to keep him on the scoresheet and apparently the top line needs depth to keep producing as well.
If Coyle can play longer than 17 seconds, the top line will come around again. Once Cullen returns Seto should be able to turn it around. If you watched Seto when he got a few shifts with Parise and Koivu on Saturday, he played very well. So I do agree that he needs a good center to keep him on the scoresheet.
As for the Pominville move, I was not on board with it at first. But, after watching him play, I am convinced that this move will help us in the end.
