I would've been willing to part with Kulemin + for the 8th overall seeing how Forsberg and Grigorenko were both on board. But the draft is done with and there's nothing that makes sense involving Kulemin.

Yeah, I agree. Very solid two-way game and defensively, pretty good on faceoffs, good speed and very fast, big bodies, etc. Would fit well between Lupul and Kessel.

Trade MacArthur+ for Clowe.

Lupul-Kulemin-Kessel
JVR-Grabovski-Clowe
Kadri-Bozak-Frattin

Trade MacArthur for forward prospect, or solid physical third line winger.

Lupul-Kulemin-Kessel
JVR-Grabovski-Kadri
Haha.

I thought I've seen it all, until now...

The Pens don't have any tradeable assets I'd want that would get me to want to trade Kulemin.

While true. when they first moved him over and they were trying to establish a sound top line they asked him if he would move to centre, given his past and he said no he wasn't comfortable playing centre with such strong competition.

I did however read today that Burke is going to give JVR a run at centre.

knew this would catch fire.

He said JVR has played some center and if Randy wants to try him there thats up to him but he's acquiring him with the mindset that he's a winger.

Unless TO wants to get rid of Kulemin for basically nothing, which it does not look like, I don't really see him as an enticing option for the Pens to take a chance on.
We are doing way better with LH LWs then we are doing on the right (last chance, Tyler Kennedy, seriously) and I was really looking for that supposed Malkin/Kulemin magic hard during Worlds and I only saw one of them having any magic. IDK, if it isn't Parise, I'd rather keep looking for a real RW or even give Sullivan one more year, if that's the only other option.

Nope, not yet, according to the All-Purpose Qualifying Offers Thread.

I was just gonna say that...why done we just offer sheet him...or trade for the rights.

There's not much I'm willing to give up for his rights. Maybe something like Jeffery+Lovejoy for rights to Kuleman.

Leafs has no incentive to do this trade, we already have enough "Jeffreys" and "Lovejoys" on the team, leafs is not going to trade Kulemin's RFA rights for players they don't need.

No, that wouldn't work. Perhaps we could get him for something around one of our extra D and a pick, as those are really our only expendable pieces now.

Not that Pitts would want him, but I see Macarthur getting shipped out over Kulemin.

Can someone pull up the stats again and show me how Kulemin is progressing EXACTLY like Datsyuk

The leafs shouldn't trade Kulemin unless they get a star back. What would Detroit give up for a younger Datsyuk? Kulemins return should be staggering

It's possible that he's included in a deal for Luongo... however Leafs would have to add a significant piece (prospect and likely a pick as well) as it wouldn't center around Kulemin.

With Harding signing a 3 yr extension, it's possible Backstrom is moved sometime this season... however he'll cost more than Kulemin is worth as well.

Don't get me wrong... I like him, and expect him to do a lot better than last year (assuming he gets top 6 icetime). However if he can't get top 6 icetime, then I don't see him doing much more than 10-15 goals. At which point moving him for another player/prospect isn't a bad thing.


It would be a horrible thing, we need him, he is big, plays soild defensively, he can score. He just a solid hockey player. I have no complaints with him, he can play top 6 or could be used in a checking role, which apparently Caryle will play his checking line a lot of minutes. He is way to valuable and things that were offered in the OP help the Leafs in no way, Leafs prefer Kulemin.
