2015-16 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

For a player that was expected to serve as little more than a third-line skater, Kulemin was a curious signing by the Islanders before last season, especially at an annual cap hit of more than $4 million. The Islanders were looking for depth on offense, and that is what Kule...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Once again the Islanders would seem to have overpaid for a player who has scored a whopping 23 goals over the last three seasons. The Islanders are hoping to recreate the magic that Kulemin had while playing on a line with Mikhail Grabovski while both were in Toronto. They are both expected to play on the second line with the Islanders and possibly be on the second power play unit. While Kulemin shouldn't be forgotten about come draft time, he is not someone to target either.

2013-14

Once upon a time, Kulemin was an emerging power forward who took the NHL by storm, scoring 30 goals, 57 points and more than 100 hits just three seasons ago. But that remarkable 2010-11 season is looking like a serious outlier as this 27-year-old is settling into the role of 35-point third liner who lays the body. He'll bother the opposition more than fantasy owners ... unless you draft him, that is. Buyer beware.

2012-13

Which Nikolai Kulemin is going to show up this year? Will the 30-goal man-beast from two seasons ago return or will we simply see a repeat of last year's pathetic seven-goal, 28-point effort? We suspect he'll settle somewhere in between, but your league format will determine the value of a 20-goal, 40-plus point winger who'll deliver Lady Byng-like penalty totals.

2011-12

Kulemin is a first-line beast -- there's no other way to describe him. And his career trajectory is still pointed up. He protects the puck well, has a nose for the net (to go with an eye for his own zone) and his wrister may someday rip the leather off an opposing goalie's paw. He, Mikhail Grabovski and Clarke MacArthur made beautiful music together last season and they're back for more this year. And to top it off, he's in a contract year and is looking at a much bigger payoff than he signed last time out. All in all, we like his situation. Don't wait too late on him; he won't be around as long as you think.

2010-11

Kulemin is poised for a breakout this season -- remember, this is the guy whom Evgeni Malkin raved about playing beside over in the motherland. He's a good skater who's hard to knock off the puck. And he has above-average skill and plays an intelligent game. He's a complementary winger who may someday pot 65-70 points. But he'll be lucky to deliver 50 this season while rolling on the second line with substandard 'mates. He's borderline in single-year leagues but should be a buy-and-hold in keeper formats.

2009-10

Kulemin pretty much bumbled his way through the first three-quarters or more of last season before coach Ron Wilson dropped him on a line with Grabovski. There he potted five goals and nine points in his last 11 games. Kulemin has a ripping wrist shot, isnt afraid to go to the net and plays a smart, two-way game. Those character traits will only endear him to his coach and that means hell get plenty of opportunity on the top two lines. Keeper leaguers should have him socked away and this year, he may manage 45-50 points.

2007-08

Fans in Leafs land think this guy is the second coming hes not. Hes going to be a steady, two-way performer with second-line potential. This year, he could be a top-nine forward in the Big Smoke as the Leafs forge forward on their youth movement.

2006-07

Second-round pick in 2006 is a solid two-way forward who figures to have a respectable NHL future.
