We don't HAVE to have the elusive #1 center - of which there are maybe 15-20 anyway and multiple teams have 2 of them (Pits, SJ, Dal - if you buy Seguin's breakthru which is powered by an almost 20 S%, Col - if you believe in McKinnon) - what we have to have is a pair of top 3 scorer's. We could get by just fine with Wilson centering a stud scorer and Smith, for example, with another scorer on the 2nd line and FF coming along.

Personally, I firmly believe Barkov/McKinnon was our chance to get one - it'll be a while before we get another chance to pick up an arnott and we simply aren't going to suck enough to have a reasonable chance to draft one without some kinda' Datsyuk foresight/luck. But a scoring wing or 2 doesn't seem so far-fetched to me with the kids we got on the backend led by Webs and a healthy Rinne - even with our meager longterm talent up front that is gonna' look enticing to someone in a year or two.
