pylon05 Posted August 6, 2013 Share Posted August 6, 2013 We have a need for a proven center ever since Malholtra shown us he is not the same player anymore and I believe Schroeder is not ready for the job. I believe he can play in this league but more as a winger. It is tough for a center in the NHL. You either come in and have it or you are thrown away or become a platoon guy for about 10 teams in your career. So I suggest the following trade if someone would wave his no trade clause. To Philly Burrows Hansen Cannata 1st To Van B. Shenn Read We get that center who can fill our hole now and for the future as well as very promising right winger in Read. We pay alot to in this trade; but I believe this is one of those bold moves MG needs to make. Philly has a log jam of centers even before they got Vinny. So trading Shenn won't hurt them at all. Couturier looks like he is ready for the 3rd line center job. And Philly gets to fill out there right side with Burrows and Hansen. I know we have some centers in our sytem and sure if they show they can play now thats great. We can put them in the 3rd line role and move Shenn up to the second line to center Booth and Kesler. Kes has shown in the past as well on our powerplay that he can play the wing and be very effective. Also this will free up alot of cap space for the trade deadline and/or for the offseason. Only thing is we would either have to play Schoeder as our 4th line center or go get someone. I am more in favor of letting him play the wing on our 3rd line and signing someone like David Steckel to center the 4th.
