Its a list of who will be the best centers in the 2012-2013 season, its simply a prediction. Is it wrong to think his point totals will go up with the additions of Parise and Sutter?

This is purely fantasy rankings? Then Kesler shouldn't even be on here, as he'll be missing half the season. I thought it was who would be the better player going into next season.

It's a list (from my understanding) asking who the best players are heading into the 2012-2013 season. Not who will put up the most points next season.

Most people thought last season he would play better with the additions of Heatley/Setoguchi and the season before that he was primed to break out. I've been following him a couple years fantasy-wise (aside from being a divisional rival) and bought into the hype for awhile now. But it's looking more and more like he is a low-end #1 (20-30 range) or a high end #2 (30-40 range) than he is to be an average to above average #1 in the league.

Based on his play thus far.

Agreed. (now I need to go wash my mouth out with soap for agreeing with a Nucks fan!)

Oh by all means please inform me of all the talented linemates Koivu has ever played with.

He put up 71 pts with Brunette and Miettinen as linemates a few years ago and never had a good scorer to play with until Heatley arrived last season. Unfortunately, Koivu hasn't stayed healthy the last two seasons so he hasn't had a chance to prove people wrong.

And since when is goal and point totals everything when it comes to defining a player? Koivu is one of the best defensive centers in the league. Bergeron and Richards are getting a lot of votes right now as well and rightfully so, they're both good defensively as well, but both of them have had better supporting casts around them through most of their careers so far.

Koivu here, but I voted for Benn. Koivu is really underrated.
Benn is currently not better than Brad Richards....

I voted mike Richards, he's the most complete player in the game

You won't find a bigger non homer Nuge fan than myself. But there are better centres left on the list.

Quite simply, it's not Mike Richards. There are better defensive players left, and obviously better offensive players.

The answer is Jamie Benn. He's the best all around player left.
