Worth more than what he can get for him right now (which could be assets more easily leveraged in a deal for a higher end talent)?
you know how it can get when you read something online. Can be hard to detect that sarcasm or facetiousness.

With regards to how much Nonis values him. Tough to say really.

I'd personally be happy with 3 mill per year or so over say 4 - 5 years. I dont think we would be able to collect enough quality picks prospects for him. In other words, the assets we'd acquire him for wouldn't be enough IMO to leverage into a deal for higher end talent.

If you want to go the upgrade route, I'd rather they package up say a Biggs or Ashton with Kulemin to get an upgrade that way.

Personally would rather just keep him. Every team needs players like Kulemin.
