Toews is versatile and skilled enough that he can play wing (and in fact I think he played LW a bit in 2010 on Crosby's line when we were still figuring out who to play up there with him), but I think we'd want him at center to better utilize his entire skillset. Like in 2010, Richards is a better candidate to move over to the wing, same for Giroux and Tavares. Eric Staal too, if he makes the team.
