I could care less if he ever transfers to wing. I'd much rather hang onto a guy who's already a very valuable player in this league, and who has the goal-scoring history, playoff performance, pedigree, and flashes of dominance at this level to suggest he could be a great center than deal him for two guys who are older, not terribly well-regarded and are no guarantees to even become successful NHL players, let alone impact ones.
