Fully agree that the third line lacks some buzz. To be honest it lacks some size and toughness too.

I think Sutter has been good not great. He's playing a safe game and is always in position but I really thought he would be more active and harder on pucks. Right now I would describe him as "sleepishly good" and I'm not sure thats a good thing.

The thing about Cooke and TK is that I think the Pens have changed their style over the start of this season and I don't think it suits them. Pucks weren't going in deep but we've seen a lot of east/ west plays high in the offenseive zone and even in the neutral zone. Kind of like when they started off the '11 season so bad. The Pens seem to be back to end boards play now so over the next few games I'm hoping Cookie and TK can pick it up.
