Actually, it was Tanguay who didn't like playing center. Hartley tried him there to start the year in an attempt to get more balance (along with the VERY short-lived experiment of Steve Brule in the top six) and Tangs wasn't all that effective. I doubt he wants to play center on the top line either, but he's probably the best option for the Flames at this point. I remember they tried Cammalleri at the top line center spot last year as well.
