Wing is wing.
Bolded is interesting.
Assume for a moment that we accept your premise as bolded. So we would rank the top X Centers and the top X Wingers. Offensive wingers would dominate and the defensive wingers like George Armstrong, Bob Pulford, Craig Ramsay, Jere Lehtinen and others would have a hard time slotting in the initial list submissions. The ones who played some center would be far removed from center consideration.
Conversely a .5X / X / .5X, LW / C / RW consideration opens slots in the initial submissions for the defensive wingers with a better chance of moving up.
