The team will likely draft a player capable of filling that role this year, probably Draisaitl. So you just need to bring someone in who can fill it for a couple of seasons until Draisaitl is ready.

In a perfect world, you bring someone in who is looking for that opportunity and has shown themselves capable, increase their value by putting them in the right positions to succeed and then when Draisaitl is ready in two or three years you can flip that centre to fill a need somewhere else.
