Point being, Leggy at winger with O'Reilly at center is much better than Leggy at center and Smithson on the wing ANYDAY. Well, maybe if they were on our 3rd and 4th lines... But we are talking about our 2nd line, a SCORING line here.
Why do those have to be the only two options? O'Reilly is center and Legwand is center, why put them together? Like SLake said, square pegs, round holes.

My point is, that Legwand is not better at wing than center by any stretch, offensively or defensively. His talents are best utilized by playing center and I don't see O'Reilly taking his job any time soon. Legwand to wing would be a last resort scenario.
