07:31 AM ET 11.08 | This past draft's No. 1 overall pick, Nathan MacKinnon, will return to life as a center of attention. He will skate with John Mitchell and Max Talbot, and Jamie McGinn will move to right wing with Paul Stastny and Gabe Landeskog. [Patrick Roy] said it became clear to him that MacKinnon needs to be at center. ... [The] fact is he had no points and no shots in a 6-4 game [Wednesday] night -- though his line was even in a 6-4 game too, plus-minus wise. I definitely believe that MacKinnon is better utilized at center, and on a third line. That gives the Avs three lines in which at least one guy can make a game-breaking type of play. Not that the other guys can't sometimes, but I really thought that last night the Avs had next to nothing offensively when it was time to roll out the third and fourth lines.

He's pretty young so they're all probably "new positions".

He only likes baseball positions - pitcher and catcher.

I guess that one needed a "soiler alert".

Talbot will definitely help the kid out. Geno was always better with Max on his line.

Maybe Patrick Roy can give him a copy of the Kama Sutra for Christmas?
