We saw Kurri at center, we saw Fedorov on the wing, we saw Lemieux on the wing. But Jagr at center, I would have liked to see it.
I think he would have had to have been trained as a center early in his career for him to really play a lot as a center, but maybe I'm wrong. I also don't see him making open ice hits ala Lindros, so he might have been better served as a center by keeping his lighter, faster frame of the early 90s.
