No player is untouchable.
Tallon has no problem taking risks.
Tallon and Santos traded Frolik for Skille because the team had like 10 hits one night on home ice against the Blues.
Who knows what they're seeing and how they evaluate players?
Tallon wasn't the guy who drafted Kulikov so I don't see why it's a silly thing to suggest.
One thing I noticed about all the players Tallon brought in was that they all played well in the playoffs. Even Versteeg who kinda pissed me off all series, ultimately produced. Fleischmann didn't, but he had a broken hand, apparently.
The rest of the guys, even Jovo, did fine. Upshall and Kopecky looked like completely different players.
I don't see the big deal in saying that maybe a trade is a possibility. You really don't know and Kulikov definitely has value on the open market/is due for a raise. What about if Kulikov gets us a young, top-6 forward that Tallon just so happens to like more? It's a definite possibility and Kulikov is one of the few on the team with that type of trade value.
It's not as if anyone said that he flat out sucks as a player and will suck for the rest of his career. Saying he was bad this series is only fact.
