Joel Quenville put Frolik on the fourth line in Chicago and turned him into a great penalty killer who can now slot in on any line when needed. I don't know why Dineen doesn't try to mold players like that?
I think Shore could be molded that way as well. I don't feel he's "assumed" the 2nd line Center role based on a shortened season and an injury plagued team. Shore could be a younger version of Matthias, they could both fill #2 or #3 slots.

I often when thinking of a Huberdeau - Matthias - Bjugstad powerplay unit in two years time.
