The best teams I've been on put the best skaters on D, then the next best at center, then the worst at wing. Not to say the wingers were terrible, but a weak skater would get exposed really quickly on D or center.

When we had strong D-men, the puck would get broken out of the zone quickly, outlet passes were on the tape, we could skate the puck out of trouble, clear the front of the net, etc. If you're constantly getting the puck out of your end and into the offensive zone, even the "weak" skaters will knock in some goals, especially if they pass to your stronger guys at the point and you work the cycle.

All that said, it's incredibly frustrating when centers can't win a draw...ever.
