At this point the only thing that separates them is that ones a C and 3 years. Based on all but 2 seasons ago, both are ~30 point players with elite defence. However, Kulemin has out scored sutter in almost every year that they have played, including the last, and has proven capable of being a 30 goal scorer (even if it was an anomaly). There is no reason why preferring Kulemin should be so surprising, they have essentially the same trade value (age and position vs. potential and resume), yet its always easier to prefer what's familiar.
