Is Leino back at center now that Roy's gone and hasn't been replaced?

Assuming nobody surprising makes the team, I'd have to think so.

God no. I think the staff believes Ott can better handle the responsibility than Leino.

If we don't bring anyone in I expect they give Adam, Porter, Grigs, and Girgs every opportunity to make the team as the 3rd line center. If they don't, I suppose they have Leino and Ott platoon the position.

My understanding is that Ott can take faceoffs and not a whole lot else.

Ott will take draws and slide back to the wing. He's done that for a long time.

This. Would actually compliment Leino rather well.

But then what would Leino do after the draw? Skate slow, miss his d-zone coverage, cause a young boy in the crowd to think hockey sucks and give up his dreams???

Sure, you laugh now, but when it really happens you'll wish you had that Leino voodoo doll blessed by the crazy eyed priestess when you had the chance. Don't worry...I did, so don't be surprised when Leino pulls up lame after a bad shift for no reason.

Well, unless some spunky kid makes the roster, I think the 3C is Leino's job to lose. Terrifying. And some people want to trade Ennis or Hodgson and make it the #2C job.
