It's between him and Brouwer with Laich not too far behind, and I think he has better hands than Brouwer even if Brouwer is tougher to move.
Being one of the best on a team without many good options doesn't make him an excellent screener. Again, he might tip pucks on the way to the net, but he does it further out from the crease than what I would consider a typical screener would do.

Maybe I'm misremembering things, but I'd put Fehr behind Brouwer, Ward, Laich, and Hendricks at the very least.
