As for the defensive assignments, the Goring line most likely, though that's not to say that Gilmour couldn't hold his own there. But Goring is just a better fit as a defensive center, freeing up Gilmour, and Dineen has a pretty good reputation as a two-way player as well, especially once he moved on from Hartford.
Yeah you have a tough job trying to optimize Gilmour and Malone with the wingers you have.
Whitney is probably more suited to playing with Malone but he doesn't belong on the first line and Malone does.. and Gilmour is probably best with good finishers because while he was a good goal scorer he was a much better playmaker.
