this is just my opinion, but I think Kunitz is irreplaceable. He's small (not that small compared to AMac), fast, has great hands, and hits like a wrecking ball. He was the glue holding the Selanne-Mac line. Kunitz has a great work ethic and I think it'll help him reach his potential pretty soon.
I would take Kuntiz any day over Penner. Kuntiz is a little spark plug out on the Ice and to lose that, that would hurt the Ducks in more ways then Penner would. Kuntiz has the power to lay some big and hard hits out there, Penner can but doesn't!
