Any example of a chronically bad faceoff center yielding the dot to a winger?

Get pretty much all the forwards working with the faceoff coach - the above mentioned, Khaira, Slepyshev, Cagguila - hell, even get Pouliot and Kassian in there learning to take the draws. Couldn't hurt.

Helps when the one thing we had going for us is we had the best faceoff guy in the league.

Benn will take faceoffs on his strong side . The two Joe's would switch in San Jose but I think that's because they are both good / centers so the first one would cheat and then if he got kicked out it was no big deal. Idk if they still do that
