Guys like Kulemin are obviously in high-demand and the salaries of the above players depict that fairly well - in addition to the high-regard with which Simmonds is held. If Kulemin wants 3 million, give him 3 million.
These are called dangerous precedents and what the Leafs must avoid. Grabowski's contract was a dangerous precedent and now is probably what in part Kulemin is looking at. The culture of earning your contract and not being entitled to it must be established.
