It is actually exactly how the league operates. GMs draft, trade and pay all based on calculated risks-projections.
Kulemin has a career year in 10-11 and last year his worst statistical year in 11-12 during his 4 seasons. Most people would have been off work with what he went through last season. Kulemin never missed a game cause of it.
Nobody is saying that Kulemin is the greatest thing since sliced bread. What he is though is a player who plays hard in all 3 zones, has a decent cap hit, can kill penalites well, is okay on the PP, is a big body presence but doesn`t take penalties, has chemistry with every player he has ever played with and stats wise should be around a 50 point player (+- 5 points either way) who might have a career year or two of closer to 65 points.
If Brouwer and Versteeg get 1st round picks in trade that is as a Leaf fan the type of return I wouldn`t go less then.
