Pens Recall Letestu and Wallace

I'm guessing Wallace is getting the call in case Kunitz isn't ready like they think he will be.

Love to see how Letestu does on the 3rd line against both Montreal and especially Washington. Might change some things...

Well Wallace makes sense for the 4th line role that the extra forward was going to get. Glad to see Letestu is back.

well, i didn't expect kunitz to play back-to-back after a month off, so he might still be able to go against the caps, hopefully.

fedotenko-crosby-guerin
dupuis-staal-malkin
cooke-letestu-kennedy
rupp-adams-wallace

...i think i'd rather swap feds and dupuis, though.

When you say 'swap', you mean trade? ;-) Honestly, I trade Feds. I like the PK and speed that Dupuis brings. He just has to be on the bottom 2 lines. On the fourth line, that would be awesome. That is definitely called 'depth' if we can do that...

I think Feds has looked pretty good playing with Crosby, compared to with Malkin.

I think he was referring to the line setup, as in switching fedotenko to the first second and putting dupuis on the first.

Yeah, I'd definitely trade Fedotenko for Dupuis.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing Kunitz with Staal again but that may be too much of our firepower on one line (with Malkin).

Yeah, you're right but it's hardly the standard of excellence we're comparing it to. Fedotenko and Malkin, for whatever reason and with just about every winger used with them, have been positively awful together this season.

When we're talking about who to swap in with sid and fighting over Fedotenko and Dupuis I am reminded of this...

What about:

fedotenko-crosby-guerin
Kennedy-staal-malkin
cooke-letestu-dupuis
rupp-adams-wallace

I honestly feel like this makes the second line better and does not hurt the 3rd line. Not sure how thats possible but thats just how i feel
