Just wondering about Kulemin.
What's his outlook for the NHL? Top 6? Power-forward Model? At the time he was drafted he was ranked a 6.5C by hockey futures, which puts him at around a 3rd line player. With his recent success at the RSL, putting aside the notions he was riding on Malkin's success his stock must have risen to that of a potential top 6 forward.
From what I've heard, and seen he looks like he could have a similar career to that of Kovalenko (50pt a year player, with a strong checking game).
Do any of you think he would play in the AHL if he was unable to make the NHL? From what I've read in his interview last year at the combine, he said he wants to learn the North American game but didn't specify at what level. His determination leads me to believe he wouldn't fuss about playing in the AHL.
But again, from what I've seen, and heard he'll probably make the team out of camp anyways.
Thoughts? Thanks in advanced, I'm really looking forward to him.
