no I don't disagree with you. Dan definitely loves his vet forwards. I don't know if he sees himself in guys like Adams and Park or what but he just can't help himself. But as it stands it would be stupid to plan on him being in the top 6. If he gets a 3rd/4th line spot and proves that he's better than another winger then put him up there, but he shouldn't start the year above the 3rd line.
