Toronto can package their 1st round pick with Edmonton's to move up a couple of slots and get that #1 center they have been looking for.

Edmonton gets some size in Kulemin who is very good in his own end and plays a good all round game, something the Oilers desperately need and a countryman to play with Yakupov. They also get a great young defenceman who is best friends with their stud on the backend Justin Shultz. It would also be good for their team chemistry.

Win Win for both teams
It's not terrible, but I don't think Gardiner has simply been good enough this year and is suspect defensively. Kulemin is solid, but kinda redudant on the Oilers that have a ton of wingers as is, and Paajarvi has had a good bounce back season and probably deserves more time in the top six next year.
