I see Nelson fulfilling a Jordan Staal-esque role in the NHL, not quite a top end offensive player, but good all-around and dependable in every situation. What's wrong with Tavares-Strome-Nelson as strong center depth? Its the most important forward position; all three are natural centers. Strome and Nelson are being groomed as such and are essentially two of the three most important Isles prospects up front along with Niederreiter.
Why would you move Nelson to wing? Leave them at center and build around them.
Definitely agree with this. Being strong up the middle is a good thing in the NHL. Even still, it is hardly the time to make any decisions regarding who stays, who goes, who gets moved to wing, etc.
