Yikes.
I am fairly certain that, if the Pens acquire Kulemin, it will be as a 'third wheel' on Malkin's line.

Then, Shero puts everything into filling out Kunitz-Crosby-XXXX, and he's got the pieces to make XXXX a pretty elite pickup.

As a Pens fan, seeing Kunitz-Crosby-Iginila and Kuli-Malkin-Neal was my playoff aspiration going into the season. Nothing has changed it.

Said that last night. Then again, maybe Shero is doing some one-stop shopping for both of his top six holes.
