Kulemin goes no where. Burke is dead to me if he moves him. I've wanted to see a JVR/Kule forechecking line since these rumours started. Burke better not take that away from me.

If you mean he slipped from 30 goals to like 7.. then yes AWFUL. But he's not awful, there's so much more to his game to be appreciated than people give Kuli credit for. Unreal forchecker, unreal taking the puck away, never quits, always skating. I would absolutely hate to play against that guy. I think the 30 goals was peak for him obviously, but he'll settle into a 20-25 goal guy fluxuating between the 3rd and 2nd line. Good on the PK despite our record on the PK.
If Burke pulls off a deal for Luongo or a #1 centremen I'll remove the "Fire Burke.." from under my username atleast for a little while and eat crow.
seriously hope its Mac+ thats going out and not Lupul. Lupul played great last year and works so well with Kessel.
Aside from the hockey aspect, after everything Lupul has been through with the injuries, the infection that almost cost him his career, and being traded so many times, I just think it would be lousy to have another team ship him away. Dude deserves to have a home for a while
What if we can get Joe Thornton or Ryan Getzlaf pipe dream but we have pieces to get it done..
But I came in here to say we have enough pieces to get a guy like Nash now giving Columbus exactly what they want.
Lupul, Kulemin, MacArthur, Gunnarrson, Next years first.... All these pieces in some sorta combination with whatever spec can get us Nash easily...
soooooo how do you guys think Schenn will do in Philly's system and with his brother, maybe an extra motivation?
Much better than he did with the Leafs. I'm a big Schenn fan (even though I've been criticle of his struggles), hopefully he succeeds in Philly. 300+ games as a 22 year old is nice. Guy will play a lot of games in his career.
