I really hope that last thing isn't just a camp experiment. Malkin was pretty good on the PK in Russia before he was drafted and he's great at stripping pucks. The thought of him and 87 getting out there at the end of a kill against a tired PP is extremely interesting to me. It was also inject some much-needed aggression to a unit that sits back too much at times.

Tangradi's skating isn't top end, but he's fine in a straight-line, and as long as he keeps his feet moving on the wall, he's fine there too. I don't know that he'll work out, but I think he's a better fit right now.

#Pens Dustin Jeffrey not getting much attention early in camp, but team is also considering him as potential winger on Malkin-Neal line

Both Despres and Vokoun suck?
