PS: this is not a samsonov bashing thread
a guy who fits your projected role. Whether its a guy like chipchura who I'm sure the habs hope to groom in one of the better 2 way centers in the league or a guy like Kostitsyn who the habs probably had projected as an offensive first line winger.
Its not necessarily all about goals. There's plenty of 2 way forwards that go in the 1st round. Especially in the latter picks of the 1st round.
