If it's too early to tell then I don't think there should be a letter grade assigned. Let's wait a couple games and then make a decision.

unrelated note - Signing SMac and then a few days later signing Gazdic might also be a perfect example of why it is best we didn't rush or put too much money into signing any old unwanted veteran NHL center.

MacT grabbed Smac in a flurry because he thought we needed protection from dirty teams... Then a few days later a less frightening but more skilled player came along and now he had wasted a contract spot.

If our centers are coming back as soon as we all hope and we blow our last contract spot on someone we won't be using, then we have no safety net in the event we desperately need to sign a position during the season or down the stretch.
