Kulikov is the only big surprise. There are 5 centers if I count correctly, so Svitov would be the 6th on the depth chart which sounds about right (he's with AkBars now, so all you Bill haters don't start about AkBars players having a wild card). With a healthy Anisimov the 4th line center spot is taken.
