As for Kunitz, he has been atrocious. This does not mean he won't come around to his old self. I've seen flashes of the old Kunitz, albeit inconsistent, but we have to remember that this guy is coming off of no training camp. This affects some players more than others, and for all we know, this could be the reason for his bad play so far.

There's no way Bylsma and Shero are ready to replace him based on 5 rapid games with no TC. However, if he doesn't improve...that's a different story.

And as for Dupuis, whoever said he's a 3rd line winger is CRAZY. He had a scoring streak longer than any in Malkin's career last year. He's been playing better than Kunitz, but this is a similar situation. We all know their usual production. It will return in time.

Come on people. 5 games is hardly a measuring stick for proven players with proven skill. Malkin keeps turning the puck over, should we trade him too? Give me a break.
