I think Shero's top priority with Staal gone SHOULD be to put both Sid and Geno out there with two good wingers each. Both obviously don't need to be/can't be top end.

Said it before, will keep saying it all year: A guy like Iginla even with Sid and Kunitz, a guy like Kumy with Malkin and Neal, with a third line of Cooke-Sutter-Duper will make a lot of my questions about the defense and Fluery go away. Sid and Geno are the Pens advantage. Time to exploit it. Don't mitigate it with the Tyler Kennedy's (or even Duper's) of this world, and don't eliminate it by giving one two good players and leaving the other without help to exploit the advantage (like Sid last year, when the Flyers completely sold out on the Geno line).
