Entitled Pens fan here, who like most of us, just got back on the bandwagon in 2005

-IMO Pens are contenders now, with or without Kulemin. They will only accept trades which improve their team NOW. No robbing Peter to pay Paul (e.g trading a Top 6 Fwd, Sutter or a Top 4 D).

-IMO Leafs are not contenders now, with or without Kulemin. Therefore they should consider trades which *may* not improve their team now, but *may* improve their team in the future.

-Leafs are aborbing most of the risk here and the Pens want Kulemin; so Pens must overpay.

Pens proposals for Kulemin

2 of (Kennedy*, Jeffrey, Tangradi) + 2013 2nd

1 of (Kennedy*, Jeffrey, Tangradi) + 1 of (Morrow, Harrington, Maata, Pouliot) + 2013 2nd

* Shero would cover part of TK's salary cap hit. Tyler Kennedy's career GPG, APG, PPG are almost identical to Kulemin's

(crazy idea, just throwing it out there: change 2013 2nd to 2013 1st in the proposals above and give up Kessel instead of Kulemin)
