I'd imagine it would be easier to swallow, but Kulikov is reading off like a juiced up, younger Ballard. He loves to jump in to the offensive play, is a great skater, isn't super big (while being bigger then Ballard) and actually owns a pretty good shot. However, he is prone to brain cramps in the defensive zone, isn't super physical, plays the left, and while he is only, what, three seasons in to his career, he probably won't get the chance to progress with Edler, Hamhuis, Bieksa and possibly Ballard, Tanev or Garrison ahead of him.

I'd much prefer Versteeg, all things being equal, but I think Kuli might be easier prey.
