Not sure where you anticipated they were going to draft a centre. Personally, I believe the drafted the prospect they wanted all along.

But you right...they did fail to land Clarkson. And its a big deal to miss on a guy like him. I don't see much else available in the same style as Clarkson in the UFA pool.

But like I said before...he's still got the Hemsky card to play and there is nothing to say he can't put together an aggressive trade involving picks/prospects + Hemsky to get someone who can provide the muscle we need in the top 6.
