Kinda like Gill-Gorges just the big guy is the rookie instead of the veteran.

I'd guess the other pairings to be Nash-Ellis and Beaulieu-Pateryn.

I agree, St. Denis is a very fundamentally sound player who Tinordi could learn from.

The Beaulieu-Pateryn partnership is interesting too. Beaulieu obviously has a lot to learn but he's more likely to be comfortable at the AHL level than Tinordi (although his defense might be poor)
