He's a very streaky goalscorer

1st line winger. Yeah I definitely think he can and most teams. #1 center no.

When he's on, Cammy's a bonafide #1 winger.

Centre? No.

Just something to note: in 18 games as a centerman with Calgary last year, Cammy had 16 points. Small sample size, but he prodcued well as a center.

1st line winger when he wants to be...at points he can be a 3rd liner. When he isn't scoring he's essentially useless.

He wouldn't be on my team.

Probably a first line winger though

I'm sure that he'd be the #1 center on a bad team or two, but no.... that's more of a slap against any team that would have him as #1 center than as a testament to his skill.

First-liner? Yes. But he is not a natural center.

Montreal made Desharnais look like a #1 centre by bookending him with MaxPac and Cole, so I don't see why the Flames would necessarily have problems doing similar with a player who is better to begin with. He didn't do too badly at centre for the Flames, covering for Backlund since mid February.

As for those citing that Cammalleri isn't a "natural centre" (i.e. other Habs fans who knew little/nothing about Cammalleri - besides his time in LA - before joining the team), let me be the first to inform you all that he was a centre his entire life before being inserted into the Kings' NHL-level depth chart, where all the centre spots were taken at the time.

I don't think he's even played 50 games as a centre. He's skilled, but time will tell.

He'd be a 3rd line center here.

Probably a 3rd line winger too...

But he's talented enough to be a 1st line winger. If he translates well, I could see 1st line center, yea. Maybe not bonafide, but kind of like Roy and Ribeiro, 1B, 2A.

Seeing as how our top line C is also a winger, it would be hypocritical of me to say "lol no".

We'll see, just like JvR.

In the NHL, maybe. To put it in perspective, when Cammalleri was the second highest scorer (top goal scorer) in the AHL (Spezza #1), I believe he centred the line in Manchester featuring Dustin Brown.

If the Flames are going to have a winger for their #1 center they are probably in trouble.

He will be their #1 wing.
