I'm not doing this to help Malkin specifically. I'm doing it to help the team, and help Kunitz get back on track.

The point I am trying to make is that players always get tried out on Malkin's line first, and if they don't succeed they aren't even tried on Crosby's. The majority of the players that are tried with Malkin always seem to have better chemistry with Crosby based on the styles of play.
Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis in 2010 out performed (I believe, on a PPG basis), K-M-N from last year.

But I guess if we're not doing this to help Malkin, we're just trying to help the team, they should move Neal up to Kunitz and Crosby's line to see how it works
