The 2018 Olympics will be a different story altogether but as of right now, i don't have a problem with having them over Hall.
I could understand Couture (2 way guy, center fill line, sniper, speed) or maybe Carter (experience) But Kunitz would be a huge mistake.
I can just see it:
First game, Kunitz struggling playing against top opposition with Crosby. Needs to be bumped to another line, but has no "chemistry" with any other center so must be kept with Crosby because its the least bad spot to put him. Continues to drag our best player down.
Atleast Hall could play on any of the lines and not dependant on another guy
