near the worst center depth in the league. if the habs want to make the playoffs they'll need to make a trade or pray to the hockey gods they get outstanding goaltending.

Or it could be the best young center core in the league. IF KK plays to potential and Poehling is ready for full time duty. Not as far fetch as haters would lead to believe.

All 4 of these centers project to be a high end first line center (Suzuki), second line center (Kotkaniemi), third line center (Poehling) and 4th line center (Evans). Short term we will see but 90% of teams in the league would probably love having this youth down the middle.

only suzuki projects to be a high end 1st line center.

i think most teams would prefer to stick with what they have.

KK projects to be a really good second line center. Whether he hits his projection or not remains to be seen but the guy is literally only 21 yeara old and has three years under his belt. Just because you dislike the habs, it doesn't change their value or projection.

yea id agree that kk is a likely 2nd liner. i just dont see 1st line potential especially high end 1st line.

I didn't say he was going to be. I was referring to him as a high end second line center. Poehling as a high end third line center and Evans 4.
