I actually think MacT has been doing a good job fixing the failed Tambo rebuild.
I agree. The guy writing the article sounds like he's on the payroll. I wonder if someone from the organization directly fed him the line "Trading for a second line centre in the NHL is basically impossible"

Sure, unless you are one of 29 other teams. If I remember correctly, Jarret Stoll was a second line center when they traded him away in the Visnovsky deal. Some others that come to mind include: Kesler, Stajan, Fisher, etc. etc. Trading for any position is impossible if a) you don't have the assets to make the deal, and b) if you're too timid to make a deal (Cheveldayoff syndrome).
