Well I would have tried different pairs from the start of the year.

What I would have done is kept Markov-PK together. Diaz-Gorges was a functional pair.
I would have kept that top 4 intact. But that is no longer possible.
I never understood why Emelin needs to play with Markov just because he's russian. It's ********. The guy is clearly more comfortable on the left, so I would have tried him next to PK long ago. Alas, we have no clue as to how they would do.

But right now, I'd have Beaulieu and Tinordi play on our bottom pair. I can live with rookies screwing up. They will learn. The top 4 gets the bulk of the responsibilities anyways.
Bouillon is bad. His reads are very bad. I don't see how our rookies could do worse. So might as well give them the experience they need.

Of course it would help if we had an actual defensive structure. Not sure if it's Therrien or Daigneault, but our 5 man defensive game is horrible.
