But it is not silly to want to see what Crosby can do with a full-time sniper. If your logic is applied the other way, Crosby with a 35 points winger is just as good as Crosby with a 70 point winger, which is completely false.

The Pens go out and get Kunitz, and, BAM, instant results. It's a false logic to say that "Crosby is so good that he doesn't need good wingers" or that "playing with Crosby wouldn't increase a skillful winger's production".
With our cap issues, getting wingers specifically for Crosby can't always be a possibility.

It'd be great to have a winger like Sharp on the team, but I don't think it's worth trading Staal to give Crosby a player to pad his stats. He's playing fine with Kunitz and Guerin.

Now Malkin on the other hand...
