I just don't see this guy being much of anything. He's a 4th liner at best and I'd love to see him replaced by a prototypical 4th line center.
He fills the requisite pest role adequately enough, but I don't see him evolving into anything more than that. But yeah, I'd like to see him moved to the wing and someone like Malone or Sgarbossa take the 3rd/4th line center role.
