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.
You might have a case with Kunitz for Boyes, but St. Louis wouldn't do that.. and trading Kunitz and a first isn't really a good plan.. Pens need those picks, the farm system isn't exactly filled with talent.
