I just mean that engaged. He doesn't have to throw his weight around to that degree, but before he last night he was invisible and almost lazy 5-on-5. If he can play with that energy level and tenacity at 5-on-5 when Geno comes back, the 2nd line will be OK, whether they are flanked by Cooke or Bennett.

As for Kunitz, I think he has undeniable chemistry with Crosby. Moreover, every time people talk about Kunitz or Crosby or the 1st line, they all mention that Crosby says he feels comfortable with Kunitz. I think it's important that 1) Crosby is comfortable with him 2) Crosby goes out of his way to express that comfort level constantly.

I want two top-6 wingers brought in, but, regardless of the number (0,1,2) I would prefer Kunitz stay with Sid. I think his numbers thus far have shown that Sid can get as much out of him (or more) as Neal and Geno.
