It wouldn't have to be a negative value that is equal to the positive value, though. For instance, face-off wins could be .01 while faceoff losses could be -.005 or something like that. So centers would still have that tie-breaker.

With just faceoff wins and not losses counted, you are inflating the value of players who take a lot of faceoffs even though they may not be good at them. For instance, Eric Staal was regularly top 10-15 in the league in faceoff wins even when he was terrible at faceoffs, just because he would take so many. Having losses counted gives more value to players who are actually good at faceoffs.
