I suggest reading the NHL rulebook on the definition of boarding before you keep making statements about the legality of hits based on where the player is hit.

Either Kulemin or Foligno would be one of the best Habs forward.

I'd take Kulemin over Foligno. Although AINEC definitely doesn't apply this season. Last year probably, but Foligno is much improved and Kulemin is having a down year. I see Kulemin as a top 6 forward for sure and Foligno as more of a 2nd/3rd line tweener.

Why do you really care? They are both good players, who play very similar styles. There isn't even a huge difference between the two.

You may need to watch the video a few more times. He checked him in the numbers, I don't know how you could possibly consider that clean.

Kulemin may be struggling, but again he's still working hard and doing the little things right, but he has had issues with depression this season. His best friend and mentor, Igor Korolev, died in the Yaroslavl plane crash, as well as many other friends and colleagues on the team. Igor Korolev was almost like a father to him, and since he lived in Toronto and became a citizen he helped Kulemin adjust to life here, Kulemin would even talk to him after games. His heart just hasn't been fully in it this year, and especially at the beginning it was noticeable.

A fan on our boards even got the chance to talk to him and asked him why he's struggling this year, and he responded that he's having a tough time with the depression related to the accident earlier in the year.

All that skill and development just doesn't evaporate in one year, he's a talented hard working player, it'll come back in due time when the pain heals a bit more.

I think Foligno may be having the better season but Kulemin is the better player.

You simply replied not to be fooled by the numbers last year, Kulemin isn't good. That doesn't have any merit to it. I watched Kulemin last year. I saw the numbers he put up last year. The numbers weren't fooling anyone, because he was playing to the level he was producing. This year, he is still playing at the level, but is just getting goose egged for his efforts. They will start going in, eventually.

If you can't see the difference between my argument, and your "no you!" response, then I can't help you.
1) I never said kulemin isn't effective...so your first paragraph is baseless.

2)I never said kulemin wasn't good...i said as good as you think...so your second paragraph is baseless.

3) you're whole point is how kulemin is good (trust me, i know, i've watch him a lot and i really like him and would love him on my team in the top 6) but my point is it's all about kulemin. You don't say anything about foligno, except for the fact that kulemin is better. Doesn't seem very fair. I'll say kulemin's shot and passing is better...but foligno is better at puck possesion and protecting the puck...as well as finishing checks and getting in on the forecheck.

You only tell one side of the story which makes it look like you haven't watched more then a douzen games over foligno's career so far.

I'm not even arguing that foligno is better. I think they're pretty close. I just find it funny how biased leaf fans are for saying "AINEC"...they are either overvaluing kulemin, or undervaluing foligno because "AINEC" does not belong in conversation when comparing these 2 players. We're not comparing phil kessel to jesse winchester here...the AINEC does not belong...for either side.

Cuz it was unintentional. I don't think wolski should have been suspended. Sure, he put his shoulder/elbow up accidentally to protect himself as he collided with alfredsson...it sucks that it happens...it was just bad luck. I question anyones thinking who thinks wolski had malicious intent and was just waiting around to injure alfredsson for no reason.

Just like alfredsson shouldn't be suspended.

You sound very soft crying for suspensions...I thought the leaf fan base was supposed to be "mean and tough"...whatever happened to those days haha.

So the NHL picks favourites and decides to penalize some teams but not others? right.

I would want nothing to do with the NHL if they did this and i'm surprised you even watch the NHL if you think it is that way. To think the NHL actually plays favourites with teams. This isn't WWE.

I always thought it was funny to make jokes about how bettman treats certain teams or players...but do you actually think bettman is saying to the refs "give pittsburgh more powerplays" cuz it they did, and the NHL had a bias, then i would never watch again as this would turn into wrastling. Because remember, both refs, and the NHL said the alfie hit on tucker was a clean hit.

Funny, when i see alfie make contact, i can see ALL of the 1 and ALL of the 6. Alfie's shoulder hits tucker to the top right of his 6...or his shoulder.

Go ahead, ask the NHL what they think? Or better yet, ask fraser on his blog...OH WAIT, he was reffing that game and did not call a penalty.

Kuly. Guy can do everything for you but has slumped this season and is snakebitten. He's the 30/30 guy he showed last year with great two-way ability and hits like a truck. The kind of guy you hold onto.

Have you heard of an edit button? Nice quintuple post there.

Also, he posted that because TrollCou...er, CarknerCountry criticized his own Sens fan colleague for picking Kulemin, and then proceeded to make it seem like Leaf fans are so crazy because some said they'd rather have Kuli over Staal in a thread last season. The post is simply a response showing that every fanbase has their crazies, and ironically, it's the same guy too.
