We miss him for sure.. I think he should get a chance on 1st line for 3-4 games,then we will see if he has more in him or he is what he was expected to be -good 3rd liner

For couple of games :
TK - Sid - Miro
Fedo - Geno - Sykie
Cookie - Staal - Dupuis

I'd like to see Cooke - Sid - TK for a few games. I'd like to see how those three at high tempo would do with forechecking/backchecking/scoring opportunities against teams.

Move Satan/Dupuis/Talbot to the 3rd line with Staal.

Cooke-Sid-TK might actually keep Sidney happy, unlike when he has to play with black holes like Dupuis and Satan.

That line is my wish,but i dont know if it will ever happen.. and is question what kind of production would they manage,lets hope for the best.. Satan aint 3rd liner,he is top 2 liner or no liner at all :) on this team
Cooke - Crosby - TK
Satan - Geno - Sykie
Fedo - Staal - Dupuis
Talbot - Ziggy - Godard?

if Kennedy is a large reason why we are losing this team is in BIG BIG trouble, which in reality they probably are.

Its not all about stats. TK gives 100% every night and it seems to rub off on people.

I could be wrong, but Fleury, Malkin, and Crosby take up, what, 15 to 20 million dollars of payroll. These guys have carried the team during the thick and thin.

I would imagine that its up to the captain, the stanley cup goalie, and the NHL scoring leader to be the heart and soul of the team. Not a third line complimentary player.

If one person is really what it takes to get this team going, I hope the team lets us know, because I can't be a fan of a team that I can't respect, and I'll jump ship right now.

TK provides the heart for the team. I'm not seeing a lot of heart from the majority of the team.

I went to the T.B. game and sat at ice level in the A section right behind the glass. Normally in pre-game warm-ups the team is cheerful and messing around and always has smiles on their face. The entire team looked depressed as hell to be there that day.

If TK is the heart and soul of the team...and we're losing because he's not here...this team is as good as dead.

Cooke is probably the heart and soul of the team. Every shift - bang.

Malkin has been giving 100% every game and most night's he is the only one who shows up. If he's not rubbing off on his teammates I don't know how Tk will be able to.

Right now Malkin is the heart and soul of this team. Fleury has been trying hard, and seems a disappointed in his teammates lately if you ask me. He obviously should considering their play, but it seems he knows they aren't competing properly and is frustrated by that. I've seen no heart from Crosby these past few games. Forget his invisible play, it seems like he flat out doesn't care out there. I know he does, probably more then anyone, but right now it's not showing whatsoever.
