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.
