Doubtful. These are 2 very comparable players. Stewart obviously had 2 big years to Kulemin's 1, but Kulemin's big year was more dominant than Stewart has ever been.

What makes you think Stewart has the higher potential? He's never reached the productivity that Kulemin did from a goalscoring perspective. Furthermore, Stewart's had the opportunity to show what he can do on 2 different organizations and it's pretty much the same. Kulemin's had 1.

Maybe both teams add to make the deal easier to justify... but we're really close on value forsure.

Of course they need a centre just like the Leafs do. But that doesn't prevent them from making other moves that they think may benefit their team.
