    Who in your opinion would benefit switching positions?


    1) Nathan Beaulieu - Yes he has great size and offensive talent, but his defensive game sometimes lacks consistency and hockey IQ. I believe he will be better used as a power forward than a defenseman. Considering his skill set and frame.

    2) Derrick Pouliot - Is another example of a defenseman with amazing offensive talent. I was able to watch this kid a lot this current season and wow! His speed and vision is amazing, seriously reminds me of Patrick Kane. Problem is that he has one of the worst defensive games I've ever seen in my life. Almost every game I watched he turned the puck over which lead to a goal. I am a Avs fan and had to live with Matt Hunwick for half of a season and I don't want the same to happen to Pouliot. Plus his lack of season really took a toll on him and lost majority of the board battles in the Hawks zone. IMO I think Pouliot is another player that would be better on the wing considering his speed and vision than the back end and be a Funwick.

    Thoughts and your players?
