Thats not true. Some players feel more comfortable playing certain positions. Wing is a lot of play off the puck while reading and reacting to others. Center is a lot of play on the puck, driving the play and a lot of skating.

As 1972 points out some players need the constant movement and involvement of the center position to be effective. Someone like Adam, with his lack of speed and if he is indecisive on wing, would tend to look like a slug.

As someone whose been a coach for a while, its always amazed me how different players react to being moved to a different position. Some make the transition with no issues at all whereas others are utterly lost in the new position.
