I want him to check from the 4th line. He will get too much ice time if he centers the 3rd line. And I disagree if a player is in the center slot he should have some ability to distribute the puck. Not asking much here. If he gets 7 - 8 ES minutes then he can stink at passing the puck and become a human shot blocker. But I think Torts intends to use him more than that and to that I object.
