Yeah, that's why Wright brothers ditched their idea of directed flight machine. Oh, wait, they didn't, that's right.


As for your question, just because something is rare and hard to do, doesn't mean that it's impossible. Especially if potential transformation would be at least a top six winger.

Names? Dustin Byfuglien was drafted as a defenseman and has successfully played as a winger as well (a bit different type of a winger though). There is even a case of a player who was drafted first overall and was converted to a forward. Not an ancient history either.

Anyway, I would just like to see him take a shift here and there to see how he looks.
