Both Crosby and Malkin seem to play better when they're playing with Kunitz. So while I'm happy we have Iggy, I'm curious. Who are some comparable's to Kunitz? A straight line player who can skate who bangs bodies and play the boards, and has some skill? Dustin Brown comes to mind. But the likely hood of us being able to acquire him is probably nil.

So who else is out there? Here's a couple that I can think of...

Troy Brouwer - Not sure about his foot speed, or with the success he had this year that Washington would A trade him, and B trade him to us.
Shawn Matthias - Not sure he has the hands/smarts to play with Malkin
Nick Foligno - Same issue as Matthias.
Kyle Okposo - Would love him... but same issue as Brouwer. Good young player that I can't see NYI moving... and especially not to us.
Nikolai Kulemin - Probably could be had... but for what?
