Im pretty sure their friends though and maybe Grabo could help him out a bit. I hope Kulemin gets better, maybe he should be given a maintainence leave of some kind for a bit to recover? Lets hope he breaks out of it sooner than later.

He's still Belarusian, the majority of people in Belarus still speak Russian and even the Belarusian language is pretty similar to Russian.

If push came to shove and we had to keep one of either Grabovski or Kulemin it would be Grabbo I would keep. He's more consistent and more of a playmaker and has a lot of heart.

Based on this year I'd agree, but based on last year its harder to say. Kulemin has a physical element to his game that no one on our team has and plays with as much heart as Grabo and was probably more consistent last year than Grabo. Grabo is a center though which is a little harder to replace. Hopefully we can keep both if we dont go for a slamdunk trade for Getzlaf

He was born in "East" Germany, which was occupied by the Soviets at the time, his dad worked there for a few years before going to back to Belarus. His nationality is Belarusian however, and he plays for Belarus in international competition.

My dear friend knows Kulie personally..and yes, he is depressed, but trying real hard to come to terms and snap out of this situation..
Igor was more than a friend and a mentor to him..I can't even discribe how Nik felt when this tragedy happened..((
Him and his wife Natasha are expecting a baby very soon, which will help his stage of mind I'm sure. So c'mon, guys, let's be patient and cut the guy some slack..)
I believe in him..

I like Kulemin and I want him to succeed. I know he's slumping and I gather that a good portion of that is due to his depression. But if we are making a move to improve the hockey club, I choose Kulemin because he isn't a center and Grabovski is. Also again Grabbo is more consistent.

True, this year he is..But I sure hope it won't come to choosing between those 2 guys..

My friend's cousin's barber's next door neighbor who talked to X player's cousin's vacuum salesman said X, type threads, aren't allowed in here. sorry.

As for Kulemin and how the lokomotiv crash affected him, it's been talked about in here plenty.
