and lest not forget Markov was drafted as a Center...
Time is of essence when building a competitive team & developing young players with pottential.
It okay to experiment once a blue moon but not regularly as the Martin does all the time especially with young players that have already talent and success at their natural position.
Eller & Poulliot are both excellent examples....
They experimented with Eller and now finally they put him back at his natural position and hes playing much better with AK
With Poulliot...All his success was always at center but they have never tried to play him at his natural position....and development has been very slow and his confidence has taken along time to develop.....
Another point with these 2 players....they should not being playing on third & fourth lines with nonskilled players...if they can't lock down a top 6 role they should be playing in Hamilton on top lines in their natural position so that we can speed up their development
