Well, I don't think we have anything to lose giving him a shot, but I hope he realizes that centermen need to be alot more defensively aware than he's been in the past. He's going to need to change his game a bit if he wants to stick there.
I feel like his production would go down if he were to play centre. He doesn't have the right mind set to be a centre in my opinion. I do not see an issue with his mindset though because we need someone to just worry about scoring!

Considering everything Kessel brings to the table, he has a much bigger chance at being a star player on the wing than up the middle. He just doesn't have the size or playmaking to be an exceptional center but he has the speed and shot to be a 40 goal guy.
It would be pretty ****in weird mane..... I think he would score a load of goals on the wing... better to do that snipa thang... but he will succeed no matter what happens. I think Kessel is not good on faceoffs?? I think RW wants him playing as a winger, staying like still ballin y'all know what I'm saying.
Kessel is also not the best defensive forward, and RW's centers always have to play very solid defensively. He doesn't like loose, soft minded centers. RW throws them away and spanks that thang....
Ron Wilson will have him on the wing. It only makes sense.
Yup, we already have too many Centers.....plus Kessel doesn't fill a need at Centre. We are currently missing a playmaker....kessel isn't that....he was brought in to be our elite scoring RW'er (which we didn't have before the trade)
Kessel wont be going back to Center - not on a Burke & Wilson team. He's too small, not a playmaker and isn't big enough. He was brought in to score flying down the wing.
