[QUOTE=Roulin;18608599]I can't see Fortier as a winger. If I'm not mistaken, Rimouski moved Caron to the wing to keep Fortier at center? His strengths (defensive smarts, speed) indicate center through and through.
Actually, He is playing on Kevin Veilleux's wing right now. He can play either position.
I believe the habs are high on him to sign him this quickly. They did the same last year with Ben Maxwell. IMO Fortier will be a role player in the NHL, playing maybe on the third, but probably on the 4th line. He doesn't have a bif frame thought.
