Is his skill set and eventual role for the team congruent with the third line wing role?
Which is why I think they really want Mitchell in that slot. I would not be shocked in the least if they move him down to the 4th and let FBJ and Fontaine work some magic while Konopka just hits people and grinds behind the net.

Russo said the lines will be more fluid this season, so I'm sure he gets shifted up and down the lineup.
