Yep. Kundratek definitely looks like an NHL player and I would absolutely hold onto him to see where his ceiling really is.

I've always been an MP supporter and felt he got a bad rap. He is always hustling and giving great effort. Good at disrupting the other team on the forecheck. He really does "engage" and its good to see him rewarded for his effort.

I will still not understand Hunter's stance of Aucoin>>MP. Hopefully Oates gives him plenty of equity to stick in the lineup.

Even MPs haters have to admit, we have no one else that can bring offense off the bench as well as he does. Any position, not just center. And its not even close. It's been that way for a long time now.

He does seem a little undisciplined but it sure seems the penalties he gets called for are generally weak ass calls.
In the late 80s I was also into the NBA. The Detroit Pistons had this one guy on their team they called the microwave. I think it was Vinny "the microwave" Johnson. He wouldn't play all that much but when they needed offense they chucked him in an he would go berzerk launching shots and being aggressive.

MP does seem to provide something akin to that.

I agree that the calls on him seem borderline. I don't mind most of his penalties. They are of the Semin variety where he gets overly aggressive trying to make something happen. I don't see them as lazy or stupid penalties.
