When Crosby is healthy, ____-Crosby-____ is going to be one of the top lines in the NHL at even strength. This isn't about Crosby, really. It's more about Neal.
When Crosby went down, Kunitz moved to Geno's line and we created a "super line". We essentially became a one-line team but it worked. I don't see why we wouldn't do the reverse with Neal moving to Crosby's line to create one big scoring line.
If Dupuis or Kunitz aren't scoring, they have other roles to play on this team. If James Neal isn't scoring, we lose Malkin AND Neal essentially.
Besides, isn't the organization curious about seeing Crosby and Neal together, to see if they produce as much as Malkin-Neal? I know I would be.
