Not if they needed a centre he wouldn't.
Without a doubt he has enough skill to play on our top 2 lines but its just a matter of who he replaces and sometimes you have to look at other intangibles like size & toughness and mix. I'd really like to see him play RW w/ the Sedins for awhile......or even give Naslund time off to recoup from this "injury" and pop Reid into his spot w/ Morrison & Cooke. Surely it couldn't be any worse than it is right now could it? .....they could see what Reid can really do now that he's back playing as good as ever....and Naslund could maybe fix whatevers wrong and come back refreshed for the playoff drive.
Island Nucklehead, I doubt Reid is as good a penalty killer as Chouinard but he is a MUCH better skater & was used as a penalty killer when he was on the WJ team a few yrs ago and most recently by Pat Quinn at the Spengler Cup. He can fill that role.
