Joseph (Point Breeze): Hey DK, thanks for the great reporting of late. In your discussions with Penguins coaches and administration, have they mentioned what line configurations they've been experimenting with in case Sid misses time? Dejan Kovacevic: I've heard nothing to that effect. No need this early, anyway. Having Jeffrey and now Steve Sullivan in the mix — not to mention Malkin back — gives you a top-six either way.

I hear that about the trainers/doctors/coaches all the time, maybe 10 times a day from readers. I've written about it, I've talked about it on TV and radio and on Twitter. You want another?
