Power centers don't just grow on trees. Sure, we'd like to have a Messier, Lindros, Lemieux, etc. to anchor the offense and dominate games, but we don't have that sort of luxury.

As the situation stands - and if Richards returns to form - our center depth atm is: 1. Richards, 2A. Stepan, 2B. Brassard, 3./4. D. Moore, and Lindberg, JT Miller filling out as the most likely call-ups.

Hopefully AV has enough sense to roll four lines on a consistent basis instead of reverting to the early 90s tactic of shortening the bench, a la Torts, which cost the Rangers a chance to advance to the 2012 Stanley Cup Final, and led to the post-defeat mutiny of the locker room after succumbing to the Bruins this year.

If things go as planned, who will Vigneault use for his primary checking center to match up against the opposing team's top line?
