    I heard Kane would like to play centre not sure if this is true but if so wouldn't a Peluso Kane wheeler line would look awesome

    So you'd have

    Ladd Little seto
    Peluso Kane wheeler
    Wright schiefle frolik
    Tangradi joiknen/slater halischuk

    Just thought Peluso showed a lot of drive and potential playing him with scorers and also having the ability to protect our stars right away would be awesome what do you guys think?

    Too much of a hypothetical for me.
    I might be the BIGGEST Peluso fan boy around. But if Tony P. is your second line winger, you're a very bad team. I think he can and will develop into a nice 3rd liner, or a very good fourth liner.

    As for Kane wanting to play centre, I think his style of play is far better suited on the wing.

    Basically these. Kane is one hell of a winger and I'm not sure how his game would transition to playing centre. On top of that, we don't have enough depth at LW for Kane to move over, and Peluso (as much as I love him and you know I do :yo:) is not anywhere near capable of filling in for Kane at 2LW. If he gets a lot (a lot) better, and Wheeler finds his game, I would almost consider it - but I just really don't think it's worth it.

    Would not like to see Kane as a centre myself. I don't think his game translates to C. Kane is not that good as a playmaker and distributor, and he's not a great passer. His skills seem perfectly suited to playing on the wing though where he can use his elite speed and physicality down the wing and along the boards.

    Exactly. If you're putting Kane at centre, you may as well just make it a one person line.
    No need for wingers, as they'll just skate around the whole game screaming..."over here! I'm open, I'm open!!!"

    He does realize passing is sort of an integral part of being a center right?

    On the other hand, if he were to play center, Scheifele could be moved to the wing to figure out his NHL game basics, kind of like Montreal is doing with Galchenyuk.

    Peluso on the 2nd line? Man, you can't be serious.

    I'm pretty sure that guy is Claude Noel in disguise.

    Could Peluso be our Bryan Bickell?
