O'k, I'll go the other way. When is the last time Sid and Geno both had two good wingers each (or the equivalent of two good wingers each). The answer is the 2008 playoff run. Pens ran through the East in 14 games. Yeah, they lost to Detroit, but that year Datsyuk was healthy and Geno was hurt (unlike the opposite the next year) and the rookie finalist jinx showed.

I don't think not having both Sid and Geno with two good wingers each precludes a cup run. I don't think both having two good wingers each insures a cup run. I simply think that giving both of them two good wingers each gives the Pens a better chance at a cup run. Sid and Geno should be a true pick your poison proposition, where you're screwed in a playoff series no matter what you do. They're not.
