I guess more of a suggestion more than anything.

Rather than state a player is "LW,C,RW". Why not just say C,W or W,C?

Any player who plays all 3 positions isn't being shifted to each position on a regular basis and most players who are all 3 positions, fans only ask to have it modified because its an eye sore knowing the player is on the RW right now but is listed as C, LW for example. It would eliminate the need for multiple position labels for these players and would keep the nomenclature down to 2-3 letters at most.

Being labeled C-W / W-C / W just seems more aesthetically pleasing to me also than (LW,C,RW), (RW, C), (LW,RW) etc

Tomas Nosek has been playing a lot as a center for Vegas but is currently listed as LW, RW.
Also, Zach Aston-Reese is listed as C, RW but is playing on both wings and hasn't played as a center since coming to the league.

Poehling has played every game in the NHL this season on LW. I think it's time to add that to him.

Source? Looking at his faceoff stats, looks like he rarely takes draws.

Jonathan Drouin does not play centre period, the order should be LW, RW
Nick Cousins has mostly been on the wings, change his order to LW, RW, C
Jordan Weal has also mostly played wing, his order should be RW, C

Paul Byron has been playing centre on the penalty kill for some reason, so the order should be LW, C, RW

Colorado Avalanche

Seems like JT Compher has become a permanent centre, so maybe switch the order to C, RW

Ottawa Senators

I think Colin White is back to playing centre, so, again the order should be C, RW
Drake Batherson is not a centre period, so just RW

Edmonton Oilers

Tyler Ennis is not a centre period (as well), so just do LW, RW

New York Islanders

Otto Koivula seems to be only playing centre, so how about C, LW, RW
