I think because of simplistic familiarity. He played some wing in junior, so we assume he'd automatically be more comfortable there than Schenn and/or Laughton...though he's obviously far and away our best defensive center, and moving him to wing hurts matchups against guys like Geno, Sid, Stamkos, Backstrom, Staal, etc.
