1) the world wasn't created in 2011-2012. Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis were the best line in the league before Crosby's concussion.
2) This notion that Crosby can produce with 2 of anyone is not correct, is wrong, is an opinion, and needs to stop being paraded around as fact. He's already having trouble now finding time and space with the puck, is little more than a tourist in the opponent's offensive zone, but it's going to get better by taking, as the author says, "one of the teams best puck retriever off" off the line?
3) Chris Kunitz is not displaying a lack of chemistry or rhythm. He's not out of sync with his linemates. He's not confused by where Crosby and Dupuis are on the ice. He's - as of right now - bad. Considering he's just as bad on the PP - where "head-from-ass" specialists Malkin and Neal happen to reside - as he is at ES, I don't think a mere move to the fircond line with Malkin and Neal fixes what's ailing him.
