Will the lack of a top-line center hurt the Columbus Blue Jackets?

Since the day Seth Jones was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets, the team has been missing a true No. 1 center. Should the Blue Jackets find another one before the season starts? Part of the reason Pierre-Luc Dubois was selected by the Blue Jackets at the top of the draft was because of his ability to play center.

Blue Jackets' GM hedges on Finn-ished products in NHL draft

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) When it comes to the NHL draft, Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen is team first, nation second.
