Its amazing what a slow start will do for a guy. Great observation hockey_lover. Also, this is the worst time to trade Kulemin, he's struggling. These are the times you get fleeced and give away a good player.
Best thing to do is to just hope he comes out of it sooner than later. Kulemin has more potential value to the Leafs right now then he has value on the trade market. Anyone disagree with that?
