In fact, I highly doubt he sticks at center for his whole career. He'll probably move to a wing. So to base your opinion on why you want to send him down on his shot really isn't fair.

As you and others have said, he's done absolutely everything to show that he belongs here. He's easily our best all around forward right now.
With how good he is in the faceoff circle, that doesnt make much sense to move him to wing. I dont see why he would move to wing when he's winning over 57% of his faceoffs (good enough to be top 15 in the entire NHL). I think people just have to realize he's not a goal scorer, never will be, and accept that.
