just curious what the take is on Filip Forsberg. Is he suited to be an NHL center (poss 2C) or is he more suited to play on the wing? Everything ive read is that hes a 2way forward who can handle himself in the the D zone. Just wondering what is eventual upside is? 2C or 1W,2W
I think with the demands Trotz puts on his centers FF is better off staying on the wing, at least for a few years. Let the kind develop his offensive game in the NHL with less defensive responsibility, and then if he shows promise as a good two-way player maybe test him at center. I'm hoping Wilson can be moved back to the pivot soon, thus negating the need to even try FF there.
Looking down the road after Legwand, Fisher, and Cullen are gone I could see it happening. I personally see his upside as being a 1W or a 2C though so I would really like to see him stay at wing. I think Wilson could move to center eventually but not until the above mentioned veterans are retired or playing elsewhere.
