Ideally...

Dupuis, Crosby, Ryan
Kunitz, Malkin, Neal

You move Kunitz and suddenly, your options on the left side get really ugly.
Yeah but if Malkin and Crosby both have legit 35+ goal guys the role of the 3rd wheel can easily be played by Dupes and Cooke. Plus even if Dupes and Cooke don't work out its an easier void to fill.

Even if the cost is Sutter, which would most likely be the case, the Pens can sign a vet 3rd line center and have that be the revolving door over the years. Guys like Gaustad and Arnott come along more often than a Bobby Ryan.
