I would suggest a pairing of say Garrison and Weaver which has been one of the NHL's premier shutdown pairings over the last two years would be a great. Use that pairing to shutdown basically anybody.

The other pairings are more two-way pairings:
Edler - Tanev
Hamhuis - Bieksa

So you have Garrison - Weaver against a team's top line, Hamhuis - Bieksa against a team's 2nd scoring line, Edler - Tanev grabbing the rest of the minutes.
How about getting just one defense-man that can consistantly play in the top pairing, rather than this rotation of 2nd and 3rd pairing players?
