Local praise of Penguins' acquisition Dominik Kahun seems to be pretty high. Is it deserved? David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune and 670 "The Score" seems to think so.
I like the Penguins trade of Olli Maatta to Chicago for Dominik Kahun. And there's an interesting player comp out there worth examining.
