Nelson does have experience on the wing, but you have to love the idea of a big, power center that he projects to be. I could see him moved to the wing down the road in the case that he shows he can't hack it up the middle. I don't think that will be a problem though.
Agreed. I think the Islanders will try both at center first and exhaust that option before ever shifting either to the wing. Nelson is definitely more flexible in that regard at this point with his previous wing experience.
