Kunitz is a stopgap in that spot at best.
Oh, I didn't expect otherwise.

But I won't get my hopes up with the way this organization develops forward talent.
His speed, IMO, will be less of an issue with Geno. And, if he drives the net and wins puck battles during sustained offensive zone shifts more consistently than Kunitz, then he can be a real complement to Geno and Neal.
