I would rather give pateryn a few games .. They already know what Beaulieu is able to do.
Which is exactly why they chose him and not Pateryn. They're still fighting for home ice. Only scenario where Pateryn would make more sense is if they were out of the playoffs or so far into first place that it didn't matter.
Once Gorges is back
Brolieu / Tinordi if NB struggles -Weaver
I want Emelin back on left so
Emelin is Markov's partner. Maybe they both want to play together...
Plus Beaulieu on the right. Won't happen at this point.
We can expect coaches to try multiple players but you should see them at their position with PO in mind.
