Meh. Doesn't do a lot for Washington. It makes sense to make Brouwer available for a 2LD, but a center would be harder to justify, especially for a strictly bottom six center like Kelly. If it was more of a 2/3C hybrid or a younger player with top six upside, maybe.

Any 3C additions would be on the cheaper end of things, if possible. Personally, I'd rather just move Laich to 3C if the Fehr experiment continues to produce poor defensive results.
