I see where you're going with this and yes, Lapierre did start to play better when moved to the centre position.
The problem is, this series has been brutal for the Habs in term for face-offs. The only one doing an okay job, has been Moore and he's barely winning more face-offs then he is losing them. Metro is very good at face-offs and the Habs need that desperately. So if Lapierre's play stumbles a little, and Metro wins some important face-offs then I'd say it's worth it.
