Anyway, probably not as simple as that, but I've read that somewhere.

Considering is strongest quality as a player is how smart he is, I would believe the transition was not such a big deal to him. And, I feel you can see some forward typical skills, especially on shootout.
Thanks. Wonder how his career would've turned out if that team had a forward spot for him....
