Sillinger Not Starting Season

It's now public knowledge that Mike Sillinger is still recovering from major hip surgery. Who then will replace him? Coach Gordon has already stated that Weight will be the number one center, and that would leave Comrie, for now, as the number two center. Here are your options:

Richard Park, Andy Hilbert, Frans Neilson, or Ben Walter.

Unless Walter has a stellar camp, I believe he'll be sent down, for now.

Neilson is a good penalty killer but I feel lacks the scoring touch for the immediate future.

That leaves us with Hilbert or Park.

My prediction: Park. Unless Hilbert can find the back of INSIDE the net like he used to when
he played for Gordon down in Providence during the preseason, look for Park to take the third line job.
