Crosby doesn't need anything more than Kunitz and Dupuis to put up points. The only reason to add to that line is that you want more goals coming out of that line. Crosby is perfectly capable of playing at a 100 point pace with those two as his even strength wings.

Crosby needs to stop trying to pass through defenders, especially on the PP. Hope he hits his stride soon because he has been relatively unimpressive so far other than the impressive amount of turnovers he has made.

They had a perfectly complementary winger in Sullivan.
I hope the real reason he's gone is because of the run for Parise and not because the Pens thought Jeffrey or ET would be acceptable.

well i wouldn't really call sullivan acceptable either. the guy wasn't really made for playoff hockey. the veteran journeyman model has had mixed results at best. satan was mostly a bust. sykora couldn't contribute once **** got real in 08 and 09, and was more of a power play specialist than anything. guerin and fedotenko were successes i suppose, but even they had warts. but most likely, any of those players were better than tangradi or jeffrey, i guess.

I think Sids game has changed since the injury. He will need more complemetry players around him to do what we know he is capible of. Since comming back he is playing like 2 assists for every goal. (21g-40a) Not shabby but Sid was on a 1 on 1 pace befor the injury. I don't want to see him carry a line on his back and put himself in harms way. But in the back of my head I know once Sid puts up the 2 goal one assist game i will be agreeing with you.

Move Kennedy to the Malkin line, put Glass on Sutter's line to replace Kennedy, and put Jeffrey, Adams and Vitale on the fourth line. Until you trade for a top 6 winger anyway......

Take it with a grain of salt, but I heard Sullivan wanted a 2 year deal to stay for whatever reason and Pens weren't willing to go there.

Keep Kennedy where he is. It is his usual fast start, he'll level off. The only possible change might be to Sid's line if one of two things occur........Iggy is acquired or Bennett comes up. I see Bennett as a better fit with Sid which would free either Kunitz or Duper to play with Geno and The Real Deal.
