Steen would be doing it because he has to, not because it's what works best for him. Sobotka is a streaky player when it comes to offense so he gets shuffled around a lot when injuries hit, and it would leave us thin in the bottom 6 center area if he had to take over for a winger. McDonald has been too successful on the top line LW since he's got to St. Louis to consider moving him back to center for anything but a faceoff. Backes has done extremely well in that role but a lot of Blues fans would like to see how he could perform back on the wing with a natural top line / top 6 center.
