that just creates the same problem on the 1st line that's currently on the 2nd line, imo. I'd be interested in trying a Kunitz - Crosby - Boychuk line, but it still leaves the same issue on the Malkin line.
I do think the fact that the team is playing well and is 8-3 gives them time to find out exactly what they have and be patient finding the right move, but if the players on the roster don't magically turn into the solution, then a move or two have to be made if they are going to win the cup.
I look at the teams which have won recently, 3 scoring lines deep. I know the Pens don't *need* that because they have "the two best players in the world" - but they are 3 scoring PLAYERS deep, not 3 scoring lines. It's just about depth and balance, the Pens need to get better in both areas.
