Personally, I think its about time we see our two best defenders play together at even strength.

The top line got consistently outmatched last season, so in my opinion I think we need to do what we can to keep that from happening again this season. To me this is the best way to go about doing that.
Although I agree with lots of you logic here - that puts a ton of pressure on Butler
Butler would have the most pressure of any player on the entire team in fact if he had to play with Wideman and I just don't think he is ready for it

He had a better year than I expected last year but I think he will find some stability and confidence if he is playing less minutes and with another quality defenceman like Gio
