Now wait a second. Signing both Doan and Semin may be a little unrealistic but thinking Bylsma would bench Adams for Tangradi is just crazy talk!

No problem

Actually knowing Bylsma I wouldn't be surprised if he did this in the top 6 with those players:

Doan - Crosby - Neal
Kunitz - Malkin - Semin

He'll give Sid his chosen winger in Neal along with the new Guerin/Roberts guy in Doan and give Semin to Malkin because he's Russian.

Russians love playing with Russians. All of them. Always.

I actually wouldn't mind that. I admit to being curious as to what kind of numbers Neal would put up with Crosby. I'm also curious to see how Malkin and Sasha would play together, how East-West it would be. I'm guessing it would be some pretty hockey.

Have to say, though, I'm not curious enough to move Neal off of Geno's line if we don't pick up another winger, but curious none the less.

I think we'd be more likely to see:

Kunitz - Crosby - Doan
Semin - Malkin - Neal

Doan is a natural RWer.
Semin is a natural LWer
You keep the Neal/Malkin combo together and add in a Russian for Geno
Crosby plays with Kunitz and Doan who are more his style of north/south grind it out, tough to play against guys.

there is no chance Semin and Neal play on the same line. That setup has 2 shooters and 2 grinders. Split them up accordingly. Both lines become more effective by swapping Kunitz and Semin in that line-up.

I agree, I'd be really surprised to see Malkin get both Neal and Semin... But then again we're talking about Bylsma here and I just repremanded johnniewalker for thinking Bylsma would do the logical thing. So yeah I guess I can see Malkin getting the two skill guys and Crosby getting the grinders haha

Dear God, have we really morphed this thread into us talking about getting both of these guys, simply by cutting TK loose?

No wonder every other fanbase in hockey hates us...haha

By the way, my vote is Semin. More dynamic and with less dings in the fenders.

Semin would fill a need on this team, Doan would as well however not at that price. I still hope we can make it happen and get Alex signed

Exactly my point

I wouldn't say Neal is strictly a sniper either. He's got some sandpaper to his game. It's not like Neal is soff.

I'm just going on how I think Bylsma would play it based on what he's done in the past.

Logic does not matter to the man

I said Semin... but man, it's painful to think about how many easy jabs could be made with Semin on Crosby's wing...

Who will Ovy headhunt if we put Malkin and Semin on the same line?

I would LOVE to have Perry on Sid's wing but the Ducks are going to re-sign him before then.

I'm on #Perrywatch. If the reports of him being a dick are true it could be much more entertaining than #parisewatch was

Watch Perry come here in six months after we trade away Kunitz, Bennett and a top D prospect and he's like "yah whatever I guess; I didn't want to be traded but I'll play with Sid. We played on the Olympics together so that's cool. We'll see what happens this summer."

Semin - Crosby - Doan
Kunitz - Malkin - Neal
Cooke - Sutter - Dupuis
Glass - Vitale - Adams
Tangradi

Looks like a pretty sexxxy set of forwards to me!
