If you look at it in a vacuum, sure, he's a decent offensive player. But a centre, especially in an offensive or top line role, needs to contribute to driving the play, creating time and space etc. They also need to be adept at handling other teams top centre's, another thing he doesn't really do.

Monahan is a passable centre that leave a heck of a lot to be desired. A guy that really isn't going to drag or be dragged into any kind of a battle. Even so, he can still be effective if he's assertive and taking charge of the middle of the ice. The problem is, he's just not very good at doing it when the games matter or the intensity ratchets up every season. Butter soft.
