On the other hand he doesn't have the biggest gun despite his improved shot, and while a great passer, he just isn't that patient which means that he tries to force quite a lot passes. Its a position I don't think he has ever played, and I don't quite see how it is meaningful to try and change him from being awesome at something to being 'adequate to potentially great' at something else? We have Gogo to be that player if that's what we're going for, or Malkin to be 'great but flawed'.
