That said, having Iginla on the same line as Sid would really be a treat to watch.

If Sid can get back in time to get 4-5 games in before the postseason, which would give DB time to shuffle the lines a bit, I'd be all for switching Dupuis to Sid's LW. Dupuis has done it well in the recent past, and this would let Iginla play on his natural side alongside Crosby:

Dupuis-Crosby-Iginla
Kunitz-Malkin-Neal

If Sid is back for game 1 of the postseason with little or no regular season playing time with the team, expect to see these lines:

Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis
Iginla-Malkin-Neal

Although I hope Iggy and Neal would switch sides in the latter case.
these are the two options I think we'll see.
