What did Chicago do to get back to the SCF that the Penguins didn't?

So it seems like the only way that situation will change is if the Pens are forced to play someone else on Crosby's wing because Dupuis is no longer an option.
Its a tricky situation because I actually like Sid and Dupes together. I just don't like Kunitz, Sid and Dupuis together. If the Pens could roll out Ryan-Crosby-Dupuis... I'm happy.
IMO Duper fits if Sid has that 35-40 goal player on one side of him.
Its like putting Lemieux with Errey and Bourque. Both were very good defensively and could score at a pretty good clip but in the end Mario needed that player that could create on his own.
I also think that Iggy could fit there. I don't think he's finished just because he didn't overly play well for the Pens but he just doesn't fit this system at all.
