Beeing a old center myself I know that it can be tricky to move to the wing for some centers -- especially depending on the role you get.
Like a center needs to be able to accelerate much more explosive then a center -- and a center almost never gets to practise at jumping into holes and reciving a pass as high up ice as a winger does.
Some centers feels like aren't able to get into the game when they are moved to the wing. Like they skate and skate and almost never gets to touch the puck.
I am afraid that Dubinsky is that type of center who would feel uncomfortable on the wing. He do not got that explosive acceleration -- like when you take a couple of short explosve strides, he is more the type of skater who takes longer powerful strides and accelerates a bit slower.
I am not about to rule out the possibility of Dubinsky playing the wing, but I am skeptical.
