Loll..Man, this is getting ridiculous. People don't even know who PK is anymore..

Kulikov was the Panthers's 3rd Dman last year. The year before that, he was their 4th. As a rookie, same thing, except he only put in 16pts as a rookie. Last season, he suffered injuries and only played 58games.
PK has more points than Kuli despite having played one season less. Actually, PK scored more goals in his rookie year than Kulikov has in all three seasons. But looking at points tells a very short story of what a Dman down.
Kulikov does not play versus the toughest opponents. That was Campbell and Garrison's roles. This year, with the addition of Jovo and Kuba, and Gudbranson making ways you can't say he will.
He's also not on the top Penalty Killing unit, and again, nor the ES one.

So really, Kulikov is more of a MDZ type than a PK type.
You want a comparable for PK, it's Tyler Myers.
