Fowler and Lindholm won't exactly intimidate other forwards in front of the net either - while Lindholm is 6'3 he still has a lot of growing into the frame to do.

As for the best option - if we have Fowler, Shattenkirk and Beauchemin then it's pretty simple. Beauchemin played his best ever hockey this year at RD - so you may as well keep him there.

Fowler - Beauchemin
Souray - Shattenkirk
Allen - Vatanen/Sbisa

Souray doesn't have to be matched up against other teams best lines and won't have to play as many minutes on that second pairing so he should be fine in that role.
Fair enough. Good post.
