He would have to be very hard to move unless his contract demands are ridiculous and he is really threatening leaving for Russia on them.
Im a huge fan of Kulikov and would love to see him on the Avs, would even entertain the idea of a Oreilly/Kulikov trade but Kulikov does not hold the Value of OEL right now, he's simply not on his level.

And the market thing is a terrible argument, Phoenix has arguably a worse market then Florida certainly no better. OEL is simply the better player.

Kulikov and Oreilly hold very similar value right now, and a 1 for 1 swap would be pretty fair. Avs could add a Defensive Dman to replace Kulikov, while the Panthers could add a 3C to replace Oreilly.
