After the past couple of games watching the Leafs (both against the Pens the other night, and the Isles tonight), I'm on the Kulemin bandwagon. But not at the price some folks on the trade board are suggesting. Either a 1st round pick OR a good prospect. Not both, and certainly not a combination of both PLUS an additional prospect or pick.

I also wouldn't mind Jiggy's suggestion of MacArthur. I think he could be a good fit for Sid's wing, on the right side opposite Kunitz.

Thing is, I'm not sure why Toronto's trading either player. They're trying to make the playoffs, not rebuilding (even though maybe they should rebuild, even if it's just a semi-rebuild). And with Lupol gone for 6 weeks with that broken forearm, trading Kulemin or MacArthur (or both) would pretty much kill their chances.
