No I agree with you. I DO think Staal should be tried there.

I'm just suggesting that Neal could be tried with Crosby and its likely if Crosby comes back this Spring.

Alls I even suggested is that it should be based on fit. If Crosby comes back and him and Neal light it up this year, DB is going with that combination. And even still, its not so crazy to suggest that the coaching staff will do what it did the last 5 times a winger has came in (outside of Poni) and give him to Sid.

What I'm saying, is that I think it should be based on fit.

Hell, what if Neal and Crosby light it up this spring and Kunitz moves over to the right side and they find success. There's no reason that Shero can't go out in FA and get Malkin a pure sniper to go along with him and Staal.

The best part of this trade is options. Thats all I'm trying to suggest. I'm not trying to "screw" Geno here.
