I'd rather do:

Tangradi-Sid-Dupuis
Kunitz-Malkin-Neal

if Tangradi is on the team. That leaves two lines with a big guy, a speedy forechecker, and Sid/Geno.
it also leaves one line with the two better wingers and one line with the two worse wingers. Want to balance it?

Dupuis - Crosby - Neal
Kunitz - Malkin - TK/Tangradi

not a popular choice, I know. But it balances both things we are talking about. I like my original line more, but I like this more than stacking one line and having Dupuis be the good winger on the other. Malkin can have the number 1 and number 4 wing, Sid can have 2 and 3. Everyones happy.

I also don't think Tangradi's speed is a problem. So there's that.

need I say more? Seriously though, I think him and Neal are plenty fast and definitely plenty physical and tough to play against.
