I also think people are overstating the importance of a player's "natural position". He's still young and wing isn't hard to learn. I think if he makes the switch now he'd be able to handle it. There might be an adjustment period, but so what? He's young and isn't really a great center right now anyway.
Schenn - 45.5%
Couts - 43.9%

Just an FYI, they both will improve on the dot IMO. Schenn has clearly shown a better upside on the offensive game than Couts at this point. Yet people still put Couts on the highest of pedestals. Neither of them are GREAT centers right now. Why not let them BOTH grow in the position?
