I'm aware he can flip to wing and likely will be some day. Pretty much any center can be flipped to at least one wing position. It's not the best utilization of the player though. Laughton is best defensively and center is not only the forward position of most importance defensively but also where face-offs take place and those factor into defense a lot.
Lecavalier, Schenn, and Couturier can all be shifted to wing really (and all of them besides Couturier have), but they're all best used as a center just like Laughton probably will.
Thus the problem.
