Why does Hossa not play center?

They said his game fits more of a winger role, The game I was watching today, and HE LOOKED like a misplaced center.

2 goals in 21 games as a Left Winger in the AHL... I gotta say we should give him his chance at center... He carries the puck very well, and pivots a lot like a center does, on the left side, I find more often than not, he can't make the play to get by the defender, and sets up around the hashmarks with the puck (to make a play) before heading low

I think the brass saw his speed (which is rather impressive) and said he had the makings of a good sniping LW'er, but I don't think he has the head to be an effective LW'er... To me his game screams center. Gotta give it to the Hossa's I think they're right on this case.
