Well let's face it, it would have been ideal if he did that but he didn't have to. No one asks Jason Spezza to stand in front of the net just because he's 6'4" - you play the guy to his strengths.

You can't force a guy to become a power forward if he doesn't have that make-up. Some guys have it and are trapped inside 5'8" bodies (Gallagher) and some guys don't and are trapped in Latendresse-sized bodies.
