If we had a more complete D squad in terms of offence, converting MAB to forward would be a no-brainer for an inventive coach. The guy has all the required assets and meshes well with some of our best offensive guys. He operates at that level offensively, no doubt.

That's funny, I was actually thinking they should try converting MAB into a defenceman.

Oh, why must you ask for the impossible? Everyone else seems to be playing make believe nicely, then you get all surreal on us.

There's a lot of comedy gold on this board today... everyone must be fighting the post-holiday blues.

It is easier to convert a D-man into a FW then vice versa
