Our 2014-15 Center Situation

So I want to see how people would vote.

1. I don't want to hear people suggest that we can get Stastny for $5 because it's "fair". What's "fair" is what someone is willing to pay for his services. That's one of the basic rules of economics - a good or a service is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. No GM will be dumb enough to even try to offer him $5. He's looking at $7.5 at a minimum, maybe $8.

2. I am discounting the possibility of acquiring a top-6 center because it's not easy. It may happen, but that's not a realistic option at this moment.

3. The options I presented are the only ones that work under the cap. You can't have Brad/Stastny + Girardi + Cally + Brass all under the cap. I mean, you could, but then you have to dump Staal+Step, an even less likely scenario.

4. I really don't see how we resign Boyle under any scenario other than dumping Brad and not signing Stastny. If we get one of them, we can't afford Boyler.

So the question is simple: what combination of centers do you pick.
