You just described every article on the Post. They do the bare minimum of reporting, or anything that requires research or provides any insight that isn't obvious.

I don't think the editors or whoever's in charge actually cares, because there's no competition. We'll all just keep clicking on the site on the off chance they actually say something we didn't already know.

I think just about everyone that visits this board even semi-regularly are doing the same thing.

We're all just about on pins and needles, even more so with the news that TPS brought us...it just plain sucks.

I'm not so sure, especially not at $5 million. Kulikov is apparently more reasonable and nearer to a deal with the Panthers.

Honestly I never knew Kulikov is as good as people on these boards make him sound. The majority of peeps think its a fair deal so I guess id be OK with it. But yeah it would be nice if they added a little.

I would think he would be scratched in Saturdays game. Unless he has "more" time due to the timezone differences. If he is landing late afternoon on a Friday I'd doubt Sacco would play him.

So it says on his KHL player page he has a 2 way contract with the NHL/MHL not sure what MHL is.
HE played their last game about 4/5 days ago, they are scheduled to play tonight in 10 hours! Fingers crossed he's not playing 'for some reason or another'......*cough* he's been signed and is flying back *cough*

I really wish this org was more forthcoming with info!

Even an encouraging update would be nice, heck I'd settle for the avs org saying they are struggling to sign him I just want an update!!

When people think of Kulikov they think of the steal at 14th in the draft due to the Russian factor.

If O'Reilly was a great draft pick at 32 what does that make Kulikov? So of course it had to be a good trade.

Trading for a young defenseman is also ideal but unless that defenseman is a top pairing defenseman (which Kulikov is not right now) he is not worth a top centre.

Just my opinion. I've seen Kulikov and he is very promising, but Florida relied on Campbell and Garrison a lot more. It's not far off though but I would want a bit more.

Kulikov was on fire until his injury. He's definitely better than Quincey was here, which makes him a #2/3 on our team and he has league-wide top pairing potential.

I'd do it if we had no chance to re-sign O'Reilly.

Neither is his brother. Maybe we'll sign him too, just to apeace (sp?) Rayan, even if Cal of course will be in the minors?....
