For the refusal to try, in any regard, be it practice, preseason, overtime or even on the whiteboard, Beau Bennett along either wing with Sidney Crosby? I know it has been discussed, but I'm looking for solid answers. I honestly can't fathom the reasoning. It is reported that Beau is going to return to the 3rd line when healthy, and if Kunitz is out or remains out, that Megna or D'Agostini will see time alongside Crosby. Is Beau not a fit with Crosby? Of course, we don't know unless it is attempted, but given their playstyles, I think they would mesh amazingly well. Bennett can mimic Hossa's presence on Sid's line--solid defensively, solid playmaking, and while not quite the goalscorer Hossa was, he can make up for it by using creativity to get the puck to an open Crosby near the net. Does KCD need to stay intact? I don't believe so. While they have been a great regular-season line, trial and tribulation has revealed that this line no longer, or never has, worked in the post-season. Crosby needs a threat when he is being swarmed, and Dupuis is not it. If you move Dupuis to the 3rd line, it becomes infinitely better, and he has shown to play well with Sutter. If you'd rather move Kunitz to Malkin's line, we all know how well that works, and it brings more balance to our 2C strength. Finally--longevity. Dupuis and Kunitz, if not already, will be past there prime in the next year or two. Bennett is here for the long haul, as is Crosby, and they have plenty of time to grow together and become one of the league's better tandems. That said, can anyone tear apart my logic or give me other reasons why Beau shouldn't play with Crosby? Is it stubbornness? Superstition?
