It's best he plays RW. We lack talent (everywhere) on the right side.

He was drafted as a center and he was a good playmaker in College. His failure to generate a ton of assists might be a result of how he was used. You pass to Savard, he doesn't score much.
I would love to see him as a center but from the Boston board I get the impression he doesn't see the ice well enough. Again, I take it with a grain of salt because he hasn't played center in two years and he really didn't do much right until last season although he had been on the wing for a while. So maybe he just had to mature enough to break out and would have done it in any role.
They need a #1 center more than another winger, at least until Blake is of the books.

Keep him on wing, he was brought into score goals, let him do it.

I doubt it as Wilson was saying he expects him to play with either Kadri or Bozak next season

We have some interesting prospects coming up in the wings (Kadri - LW/C/RW, Hayes - RW, Ryan - RW, Stefanovich - LW, Stalberg - LW, Tlusty - LW, Hanson - RW, etc), and looking at that list, I would say the Leafs prospect pool's strength is it's talented depth in the wings positions, but our centre depth is noticeably weak (After Kadri and Bozak, we have DiDomenico, Champagne .......).

Tlusty is actually a Centerman ...he just never plays it
