All three of the guys spent significant time at center, wing, and even defense (Siebert wasn't center much). That's a big reason that the players on that line didn't often get significant all-star votes.
Yeah based on the information in your bio it seems like they all shifted around as needed to fill in for injuries etc.
Stewart was playing LW/C & defense too.
