In Response to Re: Bruin Center's
[QUOTE]Our centers aren't that good. Take a look at Philly/Wash/Pitt. I don't think anybody would really want our centers. They are overpaid. Krejci is the best but I don't see him as much of a leader. He plays when he wants to play and is soft for the most part. This team has alot of good players but no one is great. That isn't how you win Cups. Sorry.

I didnt say anything about good, or great, but they are a good group..
Washington? Once you get past backstrom Brooks Laich is the next best center you think they are a stronger group?? Really?? Philly has a good group at center, But we are pretty equal with them
And Pittsburg has a great group of centers which can mostly be attributed to having been an awful team for so many years.. A number 1, a number 2 who would have been a number one if it wasnt for ovechkin, and another first rounder, Crosby and Malkin were cant miss picks, not alot of skill in drafting those guys.. The bruins can tank it for the next 5-10 years and take a shot at going that route..
As far as most teams not wanting our centers, I highly disagree especially since your talking about home grown guys coming out of the late second/early third round in krecji and bergeron..They both played in the olympics, so aparently someone wants them..
not to mention you ignored any analysis of the future possibilities in colborne and Seguin..
If this team is looking at upgrades its back on the blue line, and on the wing.. If a center gets moved at some point it wont be out of necessity but because that was a required piece to get the player the bruins wanted and because they have the parts to move.
