Kulemin as a return doesn't even justify this for the Pens.

On a side note, the Penguins have had at least one Czech player on their roster for 20-something years now. With the departure of Zbynek Michalek, you can all but guarantee that Vokoun won't be traded as he's the last Czech left .

Furthermore, Vokoun has a NTC and has been quoted as saying he wanted to play for a contender. Sorry Leafs fans.
