What can he do in the defensive zone at center? He does nothing as a winger, so what makes you think he'd know what to do as the center?
He can get back from deep in the o-zone faster than almost any other player, and can rush the puck out of the zone by himself. He accelerates quickly and can take a breakout pass with great speed. He's better along the boards than gagner, he's bigger and stronger, and can do a better job helping the defense move players off the puck in cycling / corner battles. In my opinion would be very very good defensively once he was readjusted. He has all the tools to be a two way offensive center. His natural and developed skills are wasted at the wing, where he just sits on the boards in the defensive zone or covers a defenseman in the high slot. He's ready to take on more responsibility and put his skating to use. Right now at EV he just goes up and down the wing like a Magnus Paajarvi who can score.
