Top 9:

Kunitz - Crosby - Guerin
Fedotenko - Malkin - Whitney
Cooke - Staal - Kennedy

That looks like an extremely balanced lineup heading into the home-stretch and playoffs. Unlike last year, however, I think Shero may have to focus on shoring up the D if injuries/poor play continues and that could throw a wrench into acquiring a guy like Whitney with his $3M+ cap hit.
Screw that. If we're getting Whitney, it's so that we finally don't have to see No. 26's carcas out there in the top six.

Besides, Whitney's a left-winger. And 26 sucks even more as a RW.
