Anyone starting to think we might go young( aka cheap) at the center spot this season?

I don't think any center that will be destined to be an UFA is worth the money or term they will be demanding.

If the Panthers draft MacKinnon, I could see:

Huberdeau-MacKinnon-Mueller
Flash-Matthias-Versteeg
Bergenheim-Goc-Kopecky
Howden-Shore/Bjugstad-Upshall
Parros
*Maybe mix up the lines, but, those players.

My thought process being that while Shore/Bjugstad/Howden didn't light up the NHL last year, the team will give them a very good shot at playing in the NHL again next year. All 3 are physically ready, and had at least 10 games to see how fast the pace of the NHL is.

Plus, I rather see our drafted guys get a shot, instead of someone like Bozak and force to overpay him to come play here.

Defense, dunno. I bet Kuba will somehow still be here and Jovo going on LTIR to start the season.
