cpjeff made a great, thorough post but I tend to look at "natural position" as a psych profile.
center -- strong leadership skills, wants to control play in all 3 zones, has good awareness of where his team mates are at all times.
wing -- impulsive, shifty, likes to shoot and prefers to initiate rather than react
defense -- prohibitive, stifling, prefers to react rather than initiate
goalie -- loner, masochist with a hero complex. "Most important guy on the ice".
Given these profiles I'm a natural defenseman who's currently playing wing. Remember on Seinfeld when George did the exact opposite of what he would normally do? It's like that.
