We are in a unique position that we probably never will be in again.. He'll NO team may ever be. Having 2 centers that not only are going down as 2 of the best in team history, but may in league history as well. 2 kids basically the same age coming up together that need a little help. Outside of Sid and Geno putting the team on their back our Cup year, we would have nothing to show for all that talent.
Kunitz and Dupuis are fine top 6 third wheels.. We get Crosbys Neal and this team is that much more dynamic. Unbeatable, perhaps. But until then, we're simply a team ignoring our strengths and wasting prime years of our 2 superstars.
We have Neal and Kunitz. That's one of the best pairs of top 6 wings in the league. We just split them across two centers. We don't have two all-star wingers. That's what you want. I would love it too but its not an easy thing to do. Those guys aren't available very often. When they are every team in the league wants them. Shero can't just decide he wants one and then immediately go out and get one.
