Not sure what to do here - do I move Mikhailov up, or do I take a lesser guy and go with the "Lemieux will make him better" argument?
You want to give Mario Lemieux as much ice time in offensive situations as he can reasonably handle, so keep in mind that his wings will be sharing that ice time with him.

I don't think it matters if the guy is a goal scorer or passer, but I would take a power forward if you can find a left wing power forward who is talented enough to play on a top line. Beliveau CAN take care of himself, but he shouldn't have to, and Montreal usually put a tough guy on Beliveau's line (first Olmstead then a less talented guy) to do the dirty work for him.
