Much improved first line with a player who can think at a Crosby level and can both pass and score. This first line also allows our best prospect to grow with our best player.
Give Malkin a player in Kunitz who can open him up space and make all of the small plays to him. This is when Geno, IMO, has worked his best. Maybe get a deadline soft spot sniper or get someone on a cheap one year deal (Tanguay, maybe Kariya etc.). If worse comes to worse, try Whitney with Geno because we know Kunitz has worked with Crosby before.
Third line and fourth line basically the same.
In this scenario, The first and second lines are much improved IMO and this is all completed without having to trading our 1st round pick this year to get a long term fix. This way, when Whitney is done in say, two years, Tangradi is ready to contribute at an even higher level and you got our first rounder from this year waiting in the wings for Geno or Sid.
I've wondered why Kunitz was never really given a chance with Geno.
