I'm pretty convinced by now that those are your top-2 guys, although they needn't necessarily be on your top pairing together. I would personally make sure they're each playing in the top-4, though.

You lose a lot of PP power taking out Berard, but your PP would still be about even with Reen without him. I know you didn't want two specialist types together on the 3rd pairing. Maybe Brewer plays the more defensive role for McEwen on the 2nd? He's not redoubtable defensively, but he's decent enough.

Brewer-McEwen

In the dead puck era especially, some lazy writers threw some Selke votes to anyone with a good faceoff percentage and halfway decent plus/minus. I assume Allison's votes were of that variety. Still shows that he wasn't considered a liability in his prime, like he was after his injury.
this is true.
