I think that's pretty solid, but I don't see anyway for Manning to be a top 4 defenseman here down the road unless Morin busts completely.
That said, he could fit in very nicely as a long-term #6 next to Gostisbehere should he continue to progress.
I think he offers big physicality, a little offense, and a more well-rounded game than Lauridsen.
I like that line-up. Obviously guys need to develop like we hope but seeing that is pretty cool. Though I would personally swap Schenn and McGinn, then swap Akeson and McGinn. In other words, Schenn first line winger, Akeson 2nd line winger and McGinn 3rd.
