You just said it yourself Smashian. if the guy is a poor defensive winger, you sure as hell don't convert him to a center.
Bad idea, bad option - simple as that. Cammalleri is "capable" of playing center as well - he's still a winger, and a lousy option.
And Weiss isn't the missing piece imo - I don't think either are realistic on either side of the equation. Bad move for Florida when there are other options, and not a good fit for Vancouver.
I phrased it wrong, I should have quoted you cause personally after watching all the NJ and FLA games in the playoffs he seemed fine to me.
Cammalleri is like Kessel, niether had the experiance at center Fleischmann has but volunteered (Kessel atleast) to try center.
I think this is pretty much done as I have already proven he can play center, so I'll move onto the Weiss thing.
Weiss would be a great fit here IMO, he has great chemistry with Booth, is a great playmaker, would fit well with Kesler and Booth if you ask me. He brings it all and is a veteran, if you pay attention to him throughout his career (not trying to take a shot at you saying you don't just in general) then you will see there isn't much not to like, he is solid defensively and offensively is the exact player we need and the previous Chemistry with Booth only adds to it.
