    Elite 2nd line player and one of the best 2way centres after Bergeron kopitar toews combo.

    So there must be fewer than 21-24 "1C's" in the league.

    He's one of those guys who can be enough as a #1C with the right pieces around him, and the right depth behind him down the middle. 2 ROR's would be a decent 1-2 punch. But he's that half-notch below what i'd call the "Legit #1Cs", and more ideally suited to be that absolute stud prototype #2C.

    He's certainly playing like it in STL. Over a PPG and does so many things that help win games and create for his teammates, I never appreciated him enough until he came here. Also, he's doing things he didn't used to do as well.

    Yes.

    Changed my vote to it.

    Back when the poll was made, I had him pegged as an elite 2 C/voted for that option. Currently, he's now better than that.

    In this case, it would have been better just to start a new thread.
