Florida Panthers set for years to come with young centers

The Florida Panthers are in an envious position when it comes to their depth chart: They have too many centers. The Panthers pride themselves on being strong up the middle, and since Panthers GM Dale Tallon took over, building a strong core of pivots has been a top priority.
