I don't understand this, it's not like players are born to play a certain position and that's it. Centers especially can move between all forward positions.

I really just dont see it "stunting the growth" of our young players by moving them to wing. They're still learning because they're young, it would be harder to make the move the older they get. Maybe it takes them a season to adjust to wing, but they're already developing anyway. It's not like it puts the rest of their development on hold when they switch from center to wing, they still learn.

The only ones who I see as not being able to move to wing are Lecavalier and Couturier. They wouldn't be as effective on wing given their play style. Giroux, Schenn, Laughton, Talbot and Read are all very capable of moving to wing.
