I highly doubt Kulemin is moving. He's one of our better defensive forwards who can put up points. I think the Komarov - Grabovski - Kulemin line will be able to shut down other teams top lines while still being able to produce, and the best part is they are all capable of speaking Russian, so I think the chemistry will come with time.

MacArthur is the odd man out here in Toronto, he has been for a while.

How so? I mean, I admit I haven't seem him play much - have you? He seems to show some potential in the M Richards/ Ryan Oreilly elk. Seems like he could be prototype 2nd line C material. IMO Grabo's contract will force his departure sooner or later.

Of course, we're just spitballing here, but if Kadri is also capable of the #2C now and Grabo can't play #1C, then what?

All depends ... if we can get a legit young top-6 game breaker for Grabo & Gunnar, I'd do it.
