If were giving up Kulemin so he can play with Malkin, than his value lies somewhere between where he is now and what he will be worth to the Pens as a 65-70 pt player.
Id like to get back someone like Sutter, as id think Sutter would instantly be our second best Centre. In my mind Kulemin would be replaced by JVR on the second line without too much of a hit on the lines offensive output.

Lupul - Sutter - Kessel
JVR - Grabo - Mac
Fratin - Kadri - Komarov

My issue is that lineup doesnt really seem any better / that much better than the one we have now, as it really relies on Sutter improving his skating.

So maybe something like Sutter+Tangradi+ Harrington/Despres for Kulemin+ Connoly (we eat half of sallary) + Colborne we eat part of his sallary.

I would love to see a third line with both Biggs and Tangradi next year, that could be a really interesting line if you find a strong C.
