Dumoulin-Niskanen

That is, if we re-sign all of our free agents?
Not at all. Kunitz won't stay with Malkin. It was nice last year, but you can't give Crosby 2 rookies and Malkin 2 proven scorers. That's just wrong and a bad way to treat your captain who signed for life. I'd almost guarantee that Sid gets Kunitz and Malkin gets Neal.

The Bennett situation is an interesting one. From what I've seen and read he seems to be figuring out how to play the pro game, but if the season is NOT cancelled and we get a CBA soon he'll probably stay in WBS. However if we lose a season, get a new CBA and he has a good camp in 2013, I bet he could earn a spot on the roster.
