No way you put a career minor leaguer and a player who has yet to play an NHL game with one of the game's best playmakers.

Maybe:

Cooke-Malkin-Sykora
Pesonen-Crosby-Satan
Minard/Talbot-Staal-Kennedy
Talbot/Minard-Zigomanis-Godard

Is it really worse than Hilbert-Crosby-Armstrong?

No, but when you have other viable options such as Satan/Kennedy/Talbot, you put atleast one of those guys with Crosby. And above all that, Satan should not be relegated to 3rd line duties because of Minard and Pesonen.

I'm not saying they should do it, but there is precedent for success with players that are at best 3rd liners. And for as highly as most people that have yet to see pesonen on the ice choose to hold him, he seems to be the best option at wing in the system.

I have no problem with putting Pesonen on the first line with Sid. In fact, I am advocating that Therrien do this. However, you can't put both Minard and him together with Sid, that's all. Someone more proven like Satan should definitely be playing on Sid's right wing.

I agree, but someone like Satan should have been on his wing all the time, so I have no idea what Therrien is going to do. Most things he does have worked though, so who am I to question him?

Very true. I too think he should have given Satan more than 3 games to work things out with Sid. But, once again, I am not going to question a man who brought this team 2 wins away from the Cup. Let alone, helping this team have a 47 point turnaround from one year to the next.

Minard and Pesonen were tearing it up with Jeff Taffe. It would be interesting to see what they could do with Crosby.

We should call up Taffe and reunite the WBS first line in the NHL.

No offense, but in the AHL... Minard has had playing time in the NHL with little success. I'm fine with experimenting with one of them at a time on Crosby's wing, but not both. That line becomes our 3rd line with both of them. I'd be fine with Satan, Cooke, or even for the hell of it, Staal on the other side.

I get the feeling there will be a lot of disappointed people. I hope Pesonen does well, but he is a supporting player, not an earth changing one.

You don't need an earth changing player. You just need some support for our earth changing player.

That's what I was thinking, it's not like any of the guys up here are tearing it up with Sid.

Per FSN:

Talbot-Crosby-Satan
Pesonen-Malkin-Sykora
Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
Minard-Zigomanis-Godard

I like it. Finally, 87 and 81 are re-united.

Nice to see Satan back on the first line - I think he's earned it.

I also like the third line, in theory right now at least.
