I was recently reading through a prominent program's coaches book and it said something I wanted to copy and tape to this guy's forehead. It said, whether you are the Center, Right Wing or Left Wing means nothing other than how you line up for the faceoff. After that, it is only read/react based on the order in which you enter either zone.
I tell people this all the time!
I would go so far as to say that C, LW, or RW is significant in the defensive zone as well as faceoff positions, but once the break-out begins the 3 forward positions then turn in to F1, F2, F3.
