If you've ever watched my videos or listened to my podcast, you know I'm a pretty excitable guy. When I feel a certain way about sometime, I'm not exactly one for subtlety. A month months ago I had an idea for a piece where I wanted to talk about how the Leafs were absolutely nuts for even considering moving forward without Nikolai Kulemin

Perspective is a very key thing though. I'm confident in the opinions I have, but when I'm not sure I'm totally right I don't like to pretend that I am. I called up pro scout Gus Katsaros (give that guy a follow), and we had a long discussion about the man I call the Magnitogorsk Mule.

Rather than write what I had originally planned, I'm posting the full transcribed discussion with Gus. After all, this seems like it'll be Kulemin's last day as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs if all reports are correct. So Leafs fans, read this to see who the Leafs are losing and how they replace him, and Penguins fans if you're here, here's the guy you'll probably be watching next season if the rumours are true.
