Malkin plays best with a mucker (Malone, Talbot, Fedetenko, Kunitz) on his left and a shooter (Sykora, Neal) on his right. That's not a problem, it's a style. And it hasn't been adequately addressed by the team, which is mind-boggling, since it seems so obvious.
Good point PCM. There needs to be a defensive concious on that line to let Geno and his RW produce. Kunitz was a perfect fit for Neal and Malkin since not only could he work hard on the boards and play stellar defence but he could produce points in that roll with thoes guys.
Does anyone have a clone machine, we need another Kunitz to put back on Genos line.
