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.
Hey, I'm a Pens fan, but I'm also a hockey fan. I know how it can be for fans of any team with 'fool me once, shame on me, try to fool me for the umpteenth time . . . '.

And, just so you know, there are a lot of us who would give Phil Kessel's good nut to get Kuli, we like him that much. We're just trying to stop playing fans and instead trying to envision what Dave Nonis conceivably could want that Ray Shero conceivably could be willing to give.
