This is the most remarkable thing I've ever seen said on here. That is really saying something. I almost can't bring myself to correct you, but I guess I have to: Their second-line center that year was Tomas Fleischmann about half the time, and Brendan Morrison about half the time. Laich may have played a game or two there. He never got a long look because he was clearly horrible at it.
Laich always played center, they would have other people take face offs for him because he sucked at it.
