EDIT: I looked very quickly and the last two 1st overall canadian wingers were Rick Nash (100% sure that he's not going to be an all-time great) and Taylor Hall (I haven't been following him very closely , how does he look right now? Can he become one of the top players in the league?).Canada produces a ridiculous amount of great centers though.
Well, Hall played most of his junior time as a center and I, personally, think its only a matter of time until an NHL coach puts him back there.

He'll probably be playing at 6'1, 210 by his mid-20s, and he can carry the puck, skate like the wind, and has good vision. What coach doesn't want that in a center?
