Just curous, who are the 6 centers you're referring to?

Giroux
Schenn
Couturier
Laughton
Cousins

Who's number 6?

I see 3 NHL centers and 2 prospects there. Laughton looks like he should be a solid 3rd lienr center but really, a 5 game sample which he didnt register a point doesnt make him a lock by any means.

Cousins tore up the OHL this year as an overager in his 4th season. That happens every year in the OHL or Q and half of those guys never even play in the NHL. I'm not saying he won't be an NHL player but nobody would pass on drating a center because they have Nick Cousins coming up. Not to mention, the guy might be trouble and it seems guys that find trouble, find their way out of the league pretty quickly.
