I think in general Kunitz and Sid click pretty well. Kunitz just doesn't have high end skill so it's never going to look particularly pretty between him and Sid. But they do read off each other pretty well.
Kunitz is an acceptable number 2 guy on a line. He was a great 3rd wheel with Geno and Neal. He would be a great 3rd wheel for Sid as well. The problem with him is that he doesn't create enough on his own to really draw much attention away from Sid. Teams will focus entirely on Sid and let Kunitz or Dupuis try to beat them.
