Chris Kunitz: A real vindication by @MadChad412

Yes, it is true that Canadians are obsessed with every aspect of the game of hockey. They love the sport sometimes in an unhealthy way.

The Evolution of Chris Kunitz by @griffTHW

When Pittsburgh acquired Chris Kunitz in 2009, the Penguins hoped the winger would adequately fill a role within the club's top-six.  To say that he met those early expectations would be an understatement. Indeed, Chris' career took off when he arrived in Western Pennsylvania.  Because, while he was just starting to establish himself in the NHL with the Ducks...

Chris Kunitz is having one special season

Don't look now, but Chris Kunitz is quietly having an MVP season out in Pittsburgh. If that sentence takes you by surprise, you might be among the large percentage of hockey fans that have failed to take notice of  Kunitz's incredible work to date in 2013.

TAKE ONE FOR THE COACH

Pens' Kunitz jumps to save coach from puck

When Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz isn’t setting up linemate Sidney Crosby, he’s protecting his head coach Dan Bylsma from pucks flying into the bench.  Kunitz snatched one Monday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning that had Bylsma’s name on it.

Penguins' Kunitz quiet cog in hockey's top line

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz can't really explain why he works so well with linemates James Neal and Evgeni Malkin, though his teammates have a few theories. Neal points out that Kunitz has built a career playing alongside high-profile players by doing all the little things. Kunitz fit in seamlessly with Sidney Crosby before the All-Star was sidelined by concussion...
