Nothing wrong with adding another D prospect.
And how do we know Kulemin, an established 2nd line player is worthy of trading for a defensive prospect who can then be flipped for something better? Or will ever crack the Leafs lineup?

I'm not there. In the cases of JVR/Schenn and Aulie/Ashton they were basically across the board moves, because JVR/Schenn were already established NHLers, and Aulie/Ashton are still nothing but prospects right now.

You would basically be trading one of the Leafs top 6 wingers, who brings a skillset most current Leafs players lack up front and exchanging it for an unknown.

That's moving backwards, not forwards.
