u should probably notice Filppula is better offensively and defensively than Kulemin as a winger as well so you still upgrade over Kulemin. As a center he has all the skills to compliment Kessel (responsible defensively, play making ability, speed). You're also getting Quincey who is better offensive but worse defensively to help ease the loss of him, so it's not like a total loss there.
