The hypothesis would be that he doesn't mesh well with more offensively gifted players and is more suited to a checking line role.

I have also noticed that TM is absolutely trying to match Marleau's line to highest qualcomp even though the Sharks are on the road. This has been since Couture was promoted.
At the beginning of the season, Winnik was placed in the second line ( sometimes with the highest TOI)... and Avs fans were bashing him and Sacco mercilessly. He is not made for 1st or 2nd line.
