I think Hunwick has been ok this year. He's had some poor games paired with Zanon/O'Byrne but for the most part he's been decent defensively. Offensively he doesn't give you much apart from the ability to carry the puck through the neutral zone.

Like with many of our average/below average players I think it's mostly an issue with expectations and them not looking all that good when given a role that is too big for their ability. I think Hunwick actually handles 20+ minutes better than most #6-7 guys, but he's still a #6-7 guy.

I've learned to lower my expectations when it comes to the goats around here (Kobasew, Hunwick, O'Brien, Jones) and don't mind them for the most part. I've been very disappointed with O'Byrne this year because he's underperforming in a big way.
