I don't think Sharp is a natural 2C so much, but I did always wonder why he isn't playing it anymore. Sure, he is great as LW and Chicago isn't terribly deep there either, but not even when Toews is concussed and Kane loses like 60% of his faceoffs? It seems a better approach in times of injury problems to try a rookie left wing with a good, experienced center than try the rookie center. Center is just the higher impact position there. There has to be some reason as to why Q isn't playing him as center, right? What do you think it is?
