He does have some nice moves and his speed is outstanding. If we can get Kennedy to stop taking so many dumb shots and use his speed to set up passes for Sutter from behind / around the net, that might actually work. Kennedy has shown at times he's a much better passer (in terms of accuracy and timing) than he is a shooter. He can't create the space but if his speed can get him to the puck first on turnovers resulting in dump-ins and quick chances this could work. If Kennedy chest snipes from the right half wall all year, Sutter might not sniff 20.
Better yet, get him a Ray Whitney to play with (assuming we also get one of Parise or Ryan). That would be dynamite.
Kunitz - Geno - Neal
Parise - Sid - Dupuis
Whitney(or Jeffrey) - Sutter - Cooke / Tangradi
Tangradi / Cooke - Vitale - Kennedy
Everyone where they belong.
On the flip side, how will pens fans feel if jordan gets 35 goals and 45 assists.. works both ways.. i will miss sutter.. but we got a elite player, as u pens fans know
