With training camp looming, the Pittsburgh Penguins are going into camp with no clear cut third line center on the roster.

The Pittsburgh Penguins recently brought in Jay McClement on a PTO, but he fits more of a role as the 4th line center, replacing Matt Cullen. Scott Wilson is an interesting candidate to fill in on the third line center roll, but that is an option that should not be discussed for a few more years while he develops more in the big league.

Many names like Marcus Kruger and Matt Duchene have been rumored to come to the Pens, but those seemed unrealistic. So, lets look at a few realistic options the team should look into while finding a new body to fill in down the middle.
