playing them above their means hinders development I think. I think there truly is a 'minutes to production' factor in development.

for example:

If you play Shinkaruk on the first line, he may not do very well at all even in games you play. and you finish with like 40 points in 82 games.

I think the jump comes when the production of points is passed a certain expecation of number of minutes played. Thats why huge jumps come from 2nd and 3rd line players who do really well compared to first line players who kinda just play under a point a game. McGinn is an 84 for me after netting 50 points as a 3rd line/2nd line player). He started as a 77.

So the best would probably give them 3rd or 4th Line minutes (if its a forward) or bottom 6 minutes for a dman OR just keep them in the minors all together.
