Kulikov is a guy you move a 1st++ for. If he's moved I could see Philly or Detroit ante up for him. Detroit 1st + Xavier Oullet + Tomas Tatar + ?. What would it take? Kenny Holland wants Weiss as well, throw in a 5th/6th to have first shot at negotiating a new contract?
Would it be too much to ask for Steve Sleepy Tambellini to get off his A$$ to move on this? the Oilers need a top 2 D-Man to pair with J. Schultz, and another puck mover with offence would be great.
No way is Kulikov being swindled away from us for two college players. That seems to be the trade trend right now. We have enough prospects.
Talking about impact players in return for Kuli or he's not going anywhere.
I only see Florida moving Kulikov as part of a package for a star player with a more proven track record.
Kulikov is too talented and too young for Florida to give up on him now for futures.
Take solace in the fact that you have such a young quality talent that other teams are approaching you about him. That's always a nice sign, and means your doing something right.
Good luck to you guys in the future. I've always had a thing for your team since I was a kid. (Probably due to John Vanbiesbrouck's goalie mask, but hey, when your a kid you like teams for strange reasons.)
