I thought Bartley did fine with Klein last year. I would do that again before I broke up Josi and Weber; let them develop into Suter/Weber v2 that can eat 25+ mins a night and be the bar none best pairing in the league in a year or two (assuming Shatty / Pietro are broken up). I'd rather have a killer top pairing with some uncertainty on the 2nd pairing, then a more solid 2nd pairing, but a questionable first pairing who is going to be doing the most work against the most dangerous opposing players.
