I think we talked about this before, but Dupuis would have a very simple job; play defense and get Geno the puck. That's all Geno really wants from his LW anyways.
Exactly. Dupuis is a solid 3rd wheel in the top 6 but a sub-par number 2. Kunitz is a great 3rd wheel or a solid number 2. As good as Kunitz - Malkin - Neal is, I think Kunitz is almost wasting some of his talent in that spot. Let Dupuis and Jokinen be our 3rd wheels.

I hope we use the first half of the season to experiment with different combinations for 5 to 10 games at a time. Including Bennett, who could change all of this if he really does as well as some of us think he can.
