Why is Patty a lock for center? Yes, he played well at center when the team needed it and can play it again, but I think with how many center we have already; Henrique, Zajac, Josefson, Carter, Loktionov. Elias should be a wing. Especially if we have Henrique, Zajac, and Loktionov can play on the top line with someone like Elias on their left wing.
I don't think Patty is a lock for center but I do think that putting him in the middle and putting Henrique on the wing adds a whole new element/ number of line combination possibilities to the team.
I also think that Elias at center and Henrique on the wing* will benefit eachothers playing style.
