With actual ice time rank in brackets as you'll see Bouwmeester ,Wideman & Giordano get plenty of opportunity on the PP with a forward (Tanguay) playing the other point on one unit.
I agree with this, as much as I don't want Wideman paired with Gio...

Gio and Wideman are our two most offensive d-men. Why put them on the same pairing?

Bouwmeester-Wideman would allow Wideman to play up his offensive game more as Bouw will be able to cover for him. Butler takes a reduced role with Gio and looks better for it, as he isn't a top pairing guy.
