No evidence he can win face-offs. If he is a 40% guy as per last year it will be a short experiment. I am assuming there was a reason Philly never used him there. A big physical center is worth more than a winger and Im guessing they didn't add Schenn because JVR was a better center than a winger.

If there actually was an original comment to this effect, I wonder if it is just a smoke screen so potential trading partners think he is isn't desperate to acquire another center.
