Tavares would make an amazing 3C even after his current contract expires.
Cowan (ELC) - McDavid (14M) - Marner (12M)
Robertson (2M) - Matthews (13.45M) - Nylander (10M)
Minten (ELC) - Tavares (1.91M) - Knies (3M)
Hirvonen (1.3M) - Kampf (2.4M) - Tverberg (900k)
Rielly (7M) - Liljeren (2.37M)
Kokkonen (1M) - Niemela (1.4M)
The Robertson, the ELCs, and 4th line guys can be subbed out for UFA cheapos, or Moldenhauer/Grebyonkin depending on how they're rolling.
Has there ever been a team in the history of the NHL that has had three first overall picks as their top 3 centers? I think the Leafs should do it just for that reason.
I mean I guess the season the Leafs had Thorton, depending on where they slotted him, that could have counted....but it was a 42 year old Joe Thorton.
