I don't disagree but where do you see Laughton long term? Giroux and Lecavalier will be top 6 centers for at least the next 3 years. Couturier hopefully moves into the 2nd line center within the next 3 years as well. That leaves the 3rd Line center open but not for another 3 years or so. I think you have to move Laughton to the wing at least temporarily
