Kunitz has been a good two way player before coming to the Pens. After that, a rookie Bennett who has a very good future makes your second line? The cap and economics are a consideration, but the Pens have some bad contracts paying players who no longer bring what they should. Orpik for one. I don't like Martin for the contract. He played in a protected system in NJ and with out a strong checking team, he is exposed down low over and over. Watch him and Orpik in penalty killing, they never get the freaken puck out. That's your number one pairing? Five on five they look competent, but in a penalty killing situation they stink.
take away ANY team's top two players and you'll have a mediocre team.
