The reason I kept Fedotenko around is because he is basically worthless on the market because he's a UFA and under-performs, whereas we might be able to swing a decent pick from someone for Dupuis.

If we could get a 2nd or 3rd or so for Dupuis, we could turn that around with another pick and go after Ponikarovsky. In that case, I'd love to see this lineup:

Kunitz - Crosby - Benn
Ponikarovsky - Staal - Malkin
Cooke - Ott - Kennedy
Rupp - Talbot - Guerin/Fedotenko

The speed and grit on our first line would be incredible, the size and defensive capability would be ridiculous on our second line, the hitting, speed and agitation on our third line would be hell for other teams to play against and our 4th line could actually score and be a threat.

It would be nice to have a guy like Fedotenko around in case you need him for the playoffs ala Satan last year.
