you traditionally don't randomly convert a winger to a center unless they've played it in juniors

the best players on the team are almost always raised to be centers because they can do more and thus have most nhl prospects player center at some time and learned the craft

they've tried experiments with kane in the center role in chicago and it didn't work out optimal
