Penguins coach Dan Bylsma has not divulged his plans for line combinations once center Jordan Staal returns, but one thing is clear:

Staal, who could return as early as a home game Saturday afternoon against Winnipeg, will not be part of a reunion party with wingers Tyler Kennedy and Matt Cooke anytime soon. Those three frequently have formed what has been called the top third line in the NHL.

It is possible Cooke will find himself on Staal's left, but Kennedy will not be on the ice with Staal or anyone else for a while.
