Lots of guys start playing 4th line, look no further then Richie. Plus Laughton projects to be a good 3C, so it's still a bottom six role. I understand wanting to leave him in juniors but if the Flyers give him a shot in the NHL then I would be completely ok with it.

So given that, I'm not sure Raffl is really fighting for a spot now. Laughton seems to be battling Hall, unless there is competition between Raffl/VV.
I'm pretty sure VV is being looked at as a 4th liner who can pk, I doubt he's in the discussions for the LW spot.

Btw B Schenn never played anything but C before coming to Philly and that didn't stop them from moving him to wing with Briere two years ago. Granted his split time at wing but I don't see why they couldn't do that with Laughton too. Plus it's not like once you play one position you can never go back.
