The AHL once Bylsma convinces Guerin to come out of retirement.

He'll play LW on Malkin's line even though he should play RW on Sid's line. Bylsma probably will never break up 14/87/9. Whatever.

As long as he's in the top 6 I won't care.

Bylsma also strongly suggests Letang, Despres will be a steady pairing. That would be richly welcome by both, I can assure you.

Bylsma strongly suggests he'll keep Crosby, Kunitz, Dupuis together. Told me he thinks Bennett could be good fit with Malkin, Neal. #Pens

I'm strongly predicting Bennett's role in 2013-14 will be the next "DB frustration," ala Despres this year.

Hopefully top 6, but it wouldn't surprise me if he starts on the 3rd line RW

Let's take Neal a natural LW and make him a RW. Oh wait, we did that and it worked pretty well.

What exactly is "natural" about being LW or RW? And is Adam Oates an idiot, too?

I don't know. It's a new thing to hate blame Bylsma on.

Doesn't get credit for switching Neal to RW but anyone else (see Iggy) he gets blasted.

It's because Iggy had played there for his entire NHL career which was much longer than Neal. Also, Iggy came in during an important part of the season, had to learn a new system on the fly basically, and had to adapt to a new position, and before we know it.....it's in the playoffs.

It was bad timing for it.

As excited as I am about Bennett, I'd rather see Jokinen on Malkin's line this year and let Bennett play 3rd line RW. Let Bennett really get work his way up. Jokinen is a little slow for Malkin's line, but I think he'd be a good fit there.

Oh, I agree the timing was bad. I still wonder what would have been had it not been a broken jaw. Maybe Bylsma does the same thing, we'll never know.

Agree, I'd rather see Bennett (still young player, not the 14 yrs in one position) try playing with two elite players on his off wing. Bennett wiill get 2nd unit powerplay time, and of course, there will be injuries.
