They added Flaman because point production doesn't cover every facet of the game (though he did have 6 points in 7 games so far this season), and they have only had two centermen since the start of the season, and a third that hasn't been in the lineup very much at all. A few of the wingers that they have had taking the draw have held their own on faceoffs, but have struggled at times with the backchecking aspect of a centerman's role.

This move also leads me to believe that a winger is on their way out, hopefully packaged along with a certain 'defenseman' for some more defensive help.
