Sergei has the natural skill and vision to be a centreman, but you can't just take up the position in an NHL game at this time of the year with one practice and expect to be good at it. Sergei's probably never taken faceoffs in his life and he's facing guys who have been doing it their entire careers.
The thing I'm worried about is that it seemed to rattle Sergei's confidence - three penalties in the game I believe. Hopefully they take him aside, congratulate him on the effort, but tell him he'll be sticking to the wing.
