For stretches, yes, but not for his entire first seven years. Malkin/Malone were his most common linemates in 07-08 (with Colby Armstrong before injuries ruined him rounding out the top 3) and Malkin remained in his top three most common wingers into the next season. Additionally, I remain miffed that Kunitz, who has been a first liner for the past six seasons on two different teams and with five different centers keeps getting dumped on as not an "average top six player" in this thread and others, especially when each of those teams also has a Cup with him there.
Does Sid have his examples of producing with junk? Absolutely, but to act like he's been wandering in the desert with wingers incapable of doing anything right for his entire career is pretty asinine.
