Ya, without over analyzing this is a case of a player who is slumping, plain and simple. I think during the first 10-12 games of the season Kulemin was an absolute beast. Think of that game against the Rangers, he split the D like it was nothing and faked out Lunqvist but then flipped the puck over the net. He just couldn't seem to bury. That weighs on a player and slumps pick up steam just the same as hot streaks. Kulemin is in his own head right now, this is something he just has to figure out on his own.
But hey, let's look at the bright side, at least our biggest concern is that one of our big wingers isn't producing. If this were any other year since the lockout our biggest concern would be that our goaltending is fighting the puck and can't make key saves. That has changed and that makes a huge difference. It more than compensates for a struggling forward.
