Uhh Blake had a few good season and his 2nd year in Toronto was good too. He just got old. MacArthur meanwhile is 25, has had 15+ goal/35 point season and his problem has always been consistency. He's worked at that and has found a great chemistry with that line. It's arguable he has played as good as anyone on that line.
I think Kulemin is more talented and can do others things such as hitting, his wrist shot is pretty good but sometimes you just don't see him use that to his full advantage. MacArthur uses his speed and he's got good vision on the ice and isn't a liability on the defensive end. He has made quite a few spectacular plays on the offensive end.
This isn't some 35 year old breaking out, it's a 25 year old. MacArthur looks like he'll get around 3 but he better be careful in negotiations. We've seen that if you ask for too much with Burke, he will let you go like he did with Moore and Poni. Neither of them have been as good as they were in Toronto.
