I do think our lineup is better with Crosby, Malkin, Staal down the middle. It's just extremely hard to match-up with that.

Kunitz Crosby UFA
Neal Malkin UFA
Cooke Staal Kennedy

If we do go with Staalkin I think I'd prefer

Neal Crosby UFA
Kunitz Staal Malkin

But there's a lot of different combination's we can use now and that's the best part of the deal.
Yup, it seems like you and I have been preaching this a lot throughout the last day. And I agree with your line combos but I also don't have a problem with the ones that JTG suggest. We will have plenty of time to see what actually works.
