He's a top-6 LWer, too. Something we have 1 of on the Oilers. Why not trade one of our 3 Top-6 RWers for him?
Kulemin has been invisible, lets be honest. So far watching the Leafs forwards, most of the chances have been JVR/Kessel/Bozak. Komarov has been hitting, Kadri has made some interesting passing plays, and Orr/McLaren have been hitting and fighting (and scoring lately lol). McClement has recently played well defensively. The invisible forwards are the ones that are being rumored as available, other than Grabovski, who has been inconsistent. Being:
MacArthur and Kulemin.
Recently, he's shown he's a 3rd line LW. Hemsky has and is definitely better than Kulemin. I would never make that swap. MacArthur was a possibility but he has 3 measly points and seems to have lost a bit of the form he had two years ago as a lankier physical scorer.
