I'd prefer he go back to wing and we get a real center. I like Kane with Toews.
Faceoffs are not an impossible skill to learn (see: Crosby), nor does he need to reach Toews-like levels of dominance in the dot. If he can manage even 50% in the dot, he'd still be the 2nd best faceoff man on our team.

I felt that Kane with Toews really left something to be desired this year. But when he centered his own line, Kane was creating chances on almost every shift.
