I think Shero goes after someone who's still a RFA.
i wonder how close the Kulemin in Toronto situation will come to mirror Jordan Staal's last year here. perhaps there is a measure of wishful thinking, but all signs point to this being the ideal destination for Kulemin if he chooses to test free agency - Staal wanted a bigger role and to play with his brother, Kulemin will probably be on the third-line in Toronto going forward (Lupul/Kessel/JVR/Frattin in the top-six?) and would relish a chance to play with his good friend. it could very well be worth it for Tor to trade him sooner than later.
