I'd love to have a top 5 center, but they don't grow on trees. Stepan is coming into top 15 territory. I think that's about as good as we're going to get at this point. The Bruins won the Cup with Krejci and Bergeron in the past so why couldn't we do it with Stepan and a guy (just an example) like a RoR? A player like that could potentially be obtained.
I agree with you 100%; ROR would be a terrific addition to our roster but either way, once Richards is bought out, we really need a bigger, more physically gifted center to take over as our #1C going forward.
