Id take Kulemin but the gap isnt as big as people say its actually quite close. (I have Kulemin in my keeper league and im a sens fan, I watch both players pretty closely, Kulemins production is far lower this season then his skill set).
Kulemin has a better shot and better offensive and defensive instincts he compliments his linemates better then Foligno. He also makes smarter decisions with the puck. That being said Foligno is far more effective at creating offense on his own and is a much much more physical player. Kulemin is 1 year older, when it comes to trade value I think they are about the same. It depends on what each teams needs are when evaluating which player is move valuable to your specific team.
In a playoff series I think id take Foligno but over the course of an entire season id take Kulemin.
