It's me again. The guy with questions from "left field". All the responses in my "Center vs Winger" topic were much appreciated. I think my Dahlin questions are somewhat related.
Why isn't a player like Dahlin a center?
What I mean is, as he's coming up is there a decision made by coaches, his family and he to develop as a defender?
Do you all think that's a decision made by just his skill set alone or for example - best chance to become an NHL'r or the NHL needs defense, etc? If so, what makes him not a center? Is it just because he's just too good at defense to not be one?
He's got obvious offensive skill and I'm just wondering how you all think he becomes a defender vs a Center - especially with the description you gave me on what a center is vs a winger.
As always thanks for the knowledge in advance.
