Kunitz has been nothing but solid, and I don't see how you can upgrade the wing position by trading him.
Because he's forced to be "the man" in St.Louis, who don't have anything close to an elite center, and he's not a puck possession guy - he's a sniper.

He's 27 years old, and before this year, he's had totals of 43 and 33 goals, which are goal numbers we haven't seen in about a decade from a winger. He's also an RH shot that would give our PP a completely different dynamic.

I really like Kunitz, but if we could land a Boyes and some additional grit from elsewhere at the deadline, we'd be a lot more balanced in terms of scoring.
