Whitney 5'10" 180lbs, Malkin 6'3" 195, Dupuis 6'1" 205lbs

Do you notice the "sofftness" this would bring?

They need someone with some size added to the group to go along with one of them.
I don't think so. We have Kunitz. All the Hawks had in that department was Byguflien. Yeah in a perfect world I'd love to have every line look like the old Malone/Malkin/Sykora line but it's really hard to do. Plus I think people are way too hell bent on having grit on the top two lines. Yeah it's nice and depending on the mix of players it can be better, but it's not 100% necessary. If you have 3 guys who can skate and dish to each other and be creative they can be an incredibly potent line without any muscle.
