For the Flyers it was Giroux-Briere-Schenn-Couturier. Talbot did not play center.

How did Bickell wind up as the Hawks 4C?

Also, correct me for any mistakes I make in the poll, I got these of a list on the internet because I figured that would be better then memory, I will fix mistakes in the next poll

Also prospects don't count, we are talking about now
Not that it makes much of a difference, but Gionta is probably more likely to be the center than Carter, but I doubt that will sway anyones votes to NJ.

Elias should be the one on the wing he is so bad at faceoffs.

A player can play the centre position and not take faceoffs..

I was thinking it was close between LA and Pittsburgh, but Joe Victory gives the Pens the edge.

Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Helm, and Emmerton/Abdelkader are Detroit's centers by the way...

Pittsburgh takes #1 because of Sutter. I was tempted to vote Philly.

Great debate for #2...Flyers/Kings/Bruins/Red Wings/Canucks all have reasonable arguments...

Zetterberg is Detroit's 2nd line C, not Filppula.

I think the fact Pittsburgh has 2.5x as many votes as every other team combined says:
A) this poll is over, and
B) we really could have just started with #2

It's hard to go against the team with the two best players in the game playing center.

I took Pittsburgh over LA purely because PIT's top end beats LA's spread.

Lol faceoffs dont mean that much.

Henrique should be the one on the wing because he doesn't have the vision/playmaking abilities and is better suited on the forecheck

You could dress a howler monkey as their fourth line center and it would still be Pittsburgh.

Buffalo's lineup should be Ennis (he was moved to center last year and thrived, is expected to remain there), Hodgson, and beyond that we have no idea. Could be any of Ott/Leino/Grigorenko. McCormick is likely the 4th line center. Adam is a long shot...he's likely a winger at this point.
