We don't. A number 1 center, a true #1 would make a difference here for sure.
Boston has two centers that would be our number one and by all accounts Bergeron is an elite center in the league. Columbus is probably the only team out there that is in the playoffs that does not have an elite number one center and the Predators are only 2 points behind them.

the difference between us and the playoffs this season is the loss of our elite goalie. We are also going through some growing pains on D as we are very inexperienced there. Those two combined spell doom for any team and yet we have held on to hope at a playoff spot as unlikely as it may be. We do need more scoring but it would not solve everything like many would lead you to believe...
