Shero's Plan Without Malkin?

Shero may acquire a Top 6 Forward at the Deadline per the Post-Gazette.  (Makes sense, right?)

How does the loss of Evgeni Malkin impact what the Penguins will do and who will they target?
Check out Molinari's ideas at the link above.

The Pens should be fine at Center -- assuming Crosby comes back at full speed.  If he doesn't, well, no adds at the deadline are going to fill the void, so lets not even consider that.  Crosby at 1C, Staal at 2C, and then Letestu and Talbot.

Perhaps 2 wingers?
Before the injury, I suggested Scottie Upshall, but it may now take more than that.
It sounds like losing Malkin will free up a LOT of cap space.
