Nazem Kadri is still regarded around the league as a very solid prospect. Nikolai Kulemin, by all accounts, had a down year and you don't trade a player when his value is at an all time low. I'm sure Brian Burke knows this. His play in the KHL this year has been lights out.

I feel quite confident in saying that the Canucks will not receive both Kadri and Kulemin in a package for Roberto. Heck, Burke wouldn't ship both of them out for Mike Richards last year, you think he's going to do it for Roberto?
