I don't give a **** which one Shero addresses first. All that I'd like to see is for him to address BOTH.
Kulemin is an example of a third wheel for Geno.
Guys like Iginla-- the guys you keep your 1st and the other big assets for-- are examples of second wheels for Sid.
Does it matter which gets handled first as long as BOTH get handled?
As I keep saying, if the Pens march into the playoffs with arguably the best line in hockey centered by arguably the best player in hockey and then follow that with arguably the best line in hockey centered by arguably the best player in hockey, then ANYTHING is possible for this team, no matter what the other concerns might be.
He may not say it, but you know deep down Crosby's need had better be the first addressed. He has had a quality wing for, what, 2 months here since 2005? He is way overdue. We have had enough trouble getting one quality wing here let alone two. If you can do it, fine. But Crosby better be the priority.
It may never get addressed. In a cap world some part of the team is inevitably going to get screwed.
