Paying a premium on guys who just had career years.

I see him trying to buy low on guys like Kadri/Kulemin.

Betting man that I am, I see it more likely Kadri++ happens for this very reason.
You guys are probably right in that 2nd liners and prospects are what to target. Kulemin is a bit of a sticky issue though because of exactly what Bourne mentioned...30 goals to 7 goals...who knows what he can do? Year before last I would have called him a top liner but now I honestly don't know.

Calling him a not "real" center wasn't fair. I see him as more of a 3rd line center at this point with great chemistry with Kessel and Lupul.

He's not a bad hockey player at all he's just not a #1C and he is definitely the weakest link on the line. If you give Lupul and Kessel a true #1 or even a really good #2 with chemistry I think they (or Kessel at least) would look a lot shinier.
