Of course, the debate isn’t that simple. After all, the center line is important, and if the big guy acquired from Chicago can be successful in such a vital position, he should be considered.
The CH wants him to play center, and he did so in the second half of the season. Injuries changed the CH’s plans, of course, but still: the club wanted to test him.
He responded well, even if it wasn’t as explosive as on the wing. That said, you know as well as I do that right now, the CH is thinking more about the long term than immediate results.
I believe that in early 2023-2024, Dach will play center. I don’t know who will be on the wing of the first trio (Josh Anderson is my prediction at the moment), but that could change.
Totu that to say that again this year, there will be a debate as to whether Dach should play center or wing. And clearly, it’s going to be the talk of the town.
That’s why Tim Turk was Tony Marinaro’s guest on the Sick Podcast yesterday, to talk about the Flanelle’s young forward.

He was with him the day he was traded to Montreal last year, and in recent weeks has been working on #77’s shot. Turk specializes in player shots, as you can hear in his conversation with Marinaro.
Clearly, Dach has a fan in Turk. He really likes Dach’s desire to improve, which he considers above average for an NHL player.
It’s interesting to note that Turk believes the player can improve his shooting to become a much more formidable scorer. But above all, he sees him on the wing.
He’s excellent at separating the discus carrier from the puck. Seeing him go into the corners as a wingman could help. – Tim Turk
That doesn’t prevent him from having some reflexes as a center forward, but it’s true that this quality can help the Habs.

Two things could prevent the Red Sox from bringing him back. https://t.co/Dgl9GfNXvK

– New role for Raph Doucet at La Poche Bleue.
I’m starting again on Monday @lapochebleue.
This time as a columnist, not editor-in-chief.
This way, I’ll be able to focus more on my articles, and not on management 🙂 #CH in Brossard and at the Bell Centre, interviews, “Au coeur de l’athlète” features…
See you soon!

– Love this.
Antoine Pruneau doesn’t like bullsh.t. So he doesn’t embellish the reality of professional soccer when he passes on his knowledge to the #Carabins of the Université de Montréal, who have been drinking his words since his arrival. @RDSca https://t.co/l6NgPoC7OH
