As a hockey enthusiast and not much of a player on the ice. What are people's opinion on the "best position", center or wing ?
I think a lot of players have preferred to play center over the wing, as they always moving playing a 200 ft game, while wingers engage in more puck battles along the boards, constantly starting and stopping.
In today's game though there is becoming less of a difference as the center position is becoming more of a defensive position while wingers are constantly moving with less starting and stopping in an effort for puck possession and movement. As a team breaks out of its own zone and enters the offensive zone, a player’s responsibility depends more on whether he is first, second or third to enter the zone — regardless of his position.
