Nashville needs a #1C

Edmonton needs help on the back end and in the bottom 6.

Thoughts?
If you're targeting a #1C, don't go after a team that lacks center depth just because they may need some help on the back end. Edmonton probably has a greater need for a #2C than a defenseman at this point, especially one like Ellis.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but the truth is the Avs are a far better trading partner than Edmonton. Other teams might also fit the bill.

One final note. If you want a #1C, expect to pay for it. Future picks have limited value until later in the season. You cannot expect to avoid giving up core pieces to get a major core piece back without extenuating circumstances. If you want a #1C, I honestly cannot see you guys giving up anything less than a Roman Josi in the process.
