A day after Colorado shipped P.A. Parenteau to Montreal, the team lost its top center in Stastny, who will reportedly get $28 million over the four years of this deal. St. Louis gets deeper down the middle, a position they already had some pretty good talent at with the likes of David Backes and T.J. Oshie. The Blues also re-upped Patrik Berglund this offseason. The Kings certainly have provided a good model for depth down the middle, as they boasted a lineup that feeatured Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter, Mike Richards, and Jarrett Stoll.
Earlier today, the Stars traded for Jason Spezza, giving them a top-two center tandem of Spezza and Tyler Seguin. And on draft day, the Ducks acquired Ryan Kesler, who adds to the center depth of the Ducks and Ryan Getzlaf.
