It just won't happen. Like someone else said it usually goes dman to forward not the other way around
Kapanen played D in the playoffs no less - but I think he was a defenseman when he was young. Maybe Couturier played defense as a kid- he certainly can skate backwards very well - as all good defensive forwards do.

If he was good enough at D or not good enough at forward they would have switched him before juniors I'm sure. He's too good at center anyways.

And I think Lilja has been fine. Better #6/7 than Bartulis/Walker/Gus etc.
