At the time being are they really going to improve upon Kunitz and Dupuis numbers for Sid.

Kunitz = 6+8=14
Dupuis = 4+4=8

I think we're fine there at the moment.

Now Malkins LW is another story.

Neal = 7+2=9
Tangradi/Jeffrey/Boychuk = 0+0=0

They can certainly allow one of these guys grow into that role, but at some point they have to produce more than monetary good shifts where they do good along the boards or even just show high skill levels. At some point that position will need addressed if it doesn't produce in the next weeks coming up.

Shero may have made his move for the time being with, Lovejoy.
