With what we're stuck with on the existing contract front, I think a lack of a free agent home run or immediately contributing freshly drafted forward, we more or less have to go with two 2.5 lines instead of 2 and 3. Clutterbuck is usually a problem in the top 6 because you expect the players to grind a cycle together, work the puck together, and play on a line together. Seto, Cullen, and Clutterbuck all play more or less on an island, so there's not that same worry.

Yeah, it's not perfect, but that's a stacked top line, and this all assumes no Butch/Lats. Slot one of them in and slide Clutter down, kicking out Bulmer or slipping Johnson to 4th line and demoting that 4C (in favor of Powe) and you get a little better.
