Value of Kunitz
The injuries to Kipper and Karlsson sealed my fate and I've started to get interest on Kunitz, who could be a huge boost to a contending team. The problem is that I don't know what's a reasonable ask for him.
Where do you guys fall on his value? I'm fully aware that he's 3rd overall in scoring, 4th overall in goals, and 1st in +/- because of the guy he lines up with, but wasn't Cheechoo a pretty highly sought after commodity once upon a time? I'm not saying Kunitz will win the Rocket Richard or anything, but there's certainly a comparison to be drawn there. Kunitz is on pace for 48 goals and 99 points over an 82 game season right now, and he's on pace for 200+ hits as well. His multi-cat strength is the reason I got him in the first place, in fact, but I never expected he'd approach this sort of pace.
Given the team in my sig, what do you think I should go after in talks for him? My biggest weakness, goaltending, is almost impossible to address if you aren't swapping goalies in the deal as well, so that's probably not an option. After that my biggest need is a scoring winger, which is exactly what Kunitz happens to be at the moment.
Thanks for your replies. Rep to anyone that can help!
