Well Malkin is a lot more talented than Kunitz, so yeah he can play stupid hockey and still produce. But I think it is symptoms of the same disease, the team just hasn't been sharp. The lines aren't cohesive at all and it's leading to a lot of ugly plays out there from just about everybody. Maybe Kunitz has stuck out like a sore thumb moreso than others but I still don't think singling him out is helpful. We know Kunitz didn't become terrible in one summer, after a career year no less. Whole team unit just needs to get it's crap together.
