I don't think BB and Neal are a good combination for either of our top centers. Neither brings the board work that they need. If BB were to go into our top 6, he and Neal would need to be split so each of Sid and Geno could have one of Dupuis and Kunitz. That's where Kulemin would come in. He'd let us do that while putting Dupuis on the third line.
Agreed. We need another forward who can consistently bring it on the forecheck. Getting Sid and Geno in the offensive zone on a regular basis will certainly help us turn things around defensively. At least take the pressure off them a little more while our coaching staff figures it out.
