See that Brent Burns is up front. Why not do it more?

Two good games is not necessarily a success.

Didn't Byfuglien mostly play wing while in Chicago? I haven't watched him that much but seems like he might be a good candidate for power forward?

EDIT: well, there's more Byfuglien for ya.

I think there's a lot of puck moving defencemen who could excel as a playmaking winger. Someone like Keith has all the right tools to be a top forward.

Karlsson would make a sick winger.

Kronwall. Wouldn't need to do much defensively playing on Datsyuk's wing.

Andrei Markov was drafted as a center.

Subban would be a great forward.

35-40 goal scorer with sick vision and playmaking abilities.

PK Subban should play as a rover.... anywhere on the ice he sees fit. Imagine him on the forecheck with that speed and power!

Letang, though maybe not. As good as his skating and his passing is, he's kind of slow with his stick and has problem receiving the puck and getting it to settle down quickly. That's a big thing for forwards. Plus I haven't liked his board work this year.

Chara: who wants that guy coming in on the forecheck? Great third liner!

Markov. Fowler.

Not Buff, he was more upfront to screen the goalie for Chicagos top end talented forwards.

Big Buff of course. Karlsson, Subban, and Markov. Doughty could probably do it too.

Too bad Mark Streit already played some forward for the Montreal Canadiens. One of the reasons why he left, wanted to play defense exclusively.

And so did Yannick Weber.
