Kulikov was hurt last year and that has something to do with it.. Guys that weren't hurt had high minutes when the panthers only had 4 decent d men going. Those guys you listed were pretty much healthy all year
I'm not buying the PK minutes argument.
Kulikov played 1:02 minutes/game on the PK (5th on the Panthers) & 17:58 ES (3rd on the panthers).
2:50 on the PP (2nd) and 21:51 overall...
overall 24:18 (1st)
ES 18:11 (2nd, by 8s/game)
PK 2:36 (2nd, as pointed out, this was despite his 100+PIM)
PP 3:29 (3rd, behind Markov who played only 13 games, & kaberle who played only 43 with MTL)
you don't have to "buy" anything... numbers speak for themselves.
Subban was used more & relied on more by Montreal than Kulikov was for the Panthers.
you can interpret that in terms of value to the team however you like, doesn't change the fact of how each player was used by their respective teams in the last year of their ELC.
