2 is better at C, but I'm not convinced that's that much better overall.
neither am i. i'm not discussing the rosy scenarios where the devils get the guys that 15 teams are clamoring after, or at least not yet. not only are the devils unlikely to get these players, but when they do, they will probably not like what they find because they will have had to overpay for them. that's why i'd rather just avoid getting a center altogether, because all of the centers available this off-season are going to get overpaid - there's a league-wide shortage of them. we have 3 guys who can theoretically play the position for at least another 2 years, let's take advantage of that. matthew lombardi is precisely the kind of player i'd like to avoid - he'll cost $3 million a year, and there's just no guarantee that he really makes the team better. (you can argue this about poni as well, but the devils do have 2 of their top 3 RW UFA in a year)
