That's how mistakes happen and games get lost.
Very few C's can't play wing. It's actually less responsibility but I completely get what you're saying. I was just pointing out that it wouldn't be the first time the Flyers have done this. Carter was also moved to wing while first coming up playing with Richie on the 4th line. I'm not really sure if Carter played wing in juniors at all but like I said it doesn't seem like they consider it that big a deal.
