I think this one is really difficult. There's certainly a lot of things to like about Whitney, except for the fact that he is 38 years old - with the consequences that has.
Once a forward loses a step... no less so the smallish ones... their efficiency takes a big hit, and it is quite hard to think of comparable players who just kept on trucking until they were 40, I think.

On something completely different, if Whitney is our guy on the left half-wall, where he is ace, don't we look like a team with no net presence? Because Malkin would be on the right and Crosby would be down low. There's little Sid cannot do, but an ideal guy for screening goalies on the PP, that he is not.
