Yes, Stamkos can play wing. Why should he be switched to wing just to accommodate Getzlaf? Stamkos is the better player. Everything you say about Stamkos defensively can be applied to Getzlaf. Getzlaf is still a relatively poor skater, and he did not perform well on big ice last year in ideal conditions.

He has only played 26 games this year, less than 1/3 of an 82 game season. If he goes the whole 48 games at this level and performs well in the playoffs, we have a significant sample size.

Where is the defensive cover on the second line? Where is the speed?
