You're right. Finding a top six power forward has been a problem for the Pens for many years. Malone took his sweet time to learn that type of game and once he had it, he was UFA and left. Kunitz and Guerin are doing a much better job of creating space for Sid than Dupuis and Satan did, though.

But we have four big, talented winger prospects in the system now (Caputi, Pierro-Zabotel, Veilleux and Tangradi) so hopefully 1 or 2 of them work out for us so we don't have to make a trade.
